Latest Addition: Fleurie 2015
We have a new Cru Beaujolais to introduce to our Burgundy wine collection: Fleurie 2015 from Château de Bellevue.
“An elegant and fruity wine with intense aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and a floral touch of violet. The tannins are velvety and mouth is round, fleshy and full of character.”
Terroir: The 3 ha (7.4 acres) of 60-year-old vines are located on the climat “Montgenas” (named after the Mountain Mont Genas, which rises to 388m above sea level). The sandy soil with a stony surface lies on a saprolite and a pink granite with large crystals (porphyritic granite).
Vinification: Hand-harvested, then grilled fermentation in tanks with 80% destemmed grapes. Fermentation lasts for 15-18 days with gentle pumping over.
Aging: The wine is aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks for 9 months.
Food Pairing: Tajine, pan-fried sun-dried vegetables, beef lasagna, cow’s milk cheese
