Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie is a monovarietal Gamay red wine produced by Domaine Lafarge-Vial that comes under the AOC Fleurie.
Domaine Lafarge-Vial is the small winery run by Frédéric Lafarge and Chantal Vial, located between Chiroubles and Fleurie, in Burgundy. They also work at the Domaine Michel Lafarge in Volnay, Côte de Beaune, but they had the dream of starting this project in Burgundy. They have about 4 hectares of old vines that they cultivateorganically and biodynamically. In 2014 they harvested their first vintage, and since then have been producing high quality wines.
The vineyard for Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie is around 55-60 years old and faces south and southeast. It is cultivated organically and biodynamically, although the winery has not yet been certified.
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie is vinified by vatting part of the vintage with the stems, without destemming. It ferments with native yeasts in cement tanks and its colour and aromas are extracted gently, to avoid giving the wine unpleasant herbal touches. Lastly the wine undergoes a refining ageing in used barrels for a year.
Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie is a red wine with aromas of fresh fruit, accompanied by touches of spices, minerals and chocolate.
