Domaine de Fa Fleurie 2018 is a smooth red wine with rustic aromas of red fruit, floral notes and hints of spice. The palate is round, dense and velvety. A wine with high acidity, unpolished tannins and a very pleasant touch of carbon dioxide.

Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

For a long time Beaujolais wine has not had a prestigious status. It has not been helped by rulings like the one proclaimed by Philip II of Burgundy at the end of the 14th century, where he banned the cultivation of Gamay, the area’s typical variety, on the grounds that it was thought to be inferior to Pinot Noir. If we add to this the fact that its best known wine is Beaujolais Nouveau, a young, simple and unpretentious wine, the wines of this region have not had an easy time when it comes to making a name for themselves. However, a new generation of winegrowers are beginning to experiment in this region with very good results. Two of these winegrowers are brothers Antoine and Maxime Graillot, sons of the prestigious Alain Graillot who, fond of the wines from the northern Rhône Valley, fell in love with a site known as Côte de Basset and set up their own project called Domaine de Fa.

Wines like Domaine de Fa Fleurie define the style of the Graillot family. This is a single-variety Gamay wine from the AOC Fleurie, known as the “queen” of Beaujolais Crus, made from a plot located at an altitude of 350 metres above sea level on decomposed granite soils. The vines are cultivated using the same methods as other local winegrowers, with organic agriculture and no chemical products. Once the grapes have been harvested, following the Beaujolais tradition, they are vinified in a semi-carbonic way, in whole bunches and with native yeasts. The wine is then aged in 20 hectolitre Stockinger foudres for 12 months.

Domaine de Fa Fleurie breaks with the myth that Beaujolais wines are young wines. This is a red wine for aging with that subtle floral intensity that only great winemakers can achieve.
