This delightful Fleurie is made from grapes grown on vines that thrive in sandstone rather than granite. This wine was fermented in concrete tanks lined with epoxy resin using whole bunches of grapes and, after pressing, transferred to large, old wooden barrels of between 20 hectolitres and 37 hectolitres in capacity. The wine exhibits the most delicate characters of his cru Beaujolais wines. While this wine is characteristic of a Fleurie it appears lighter, perhaps due to the sandstone rather than granite terroir. (Living Wines Website)
