Real reviews from customers who have purchased this product

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Joie du Palais is a monovarietal Gamay red wine from the AOC Fleurie, produced by Domaine Lafarge-Vial.

Domaine Lafarge-Vial is a small winery located in Fleurie, Beaujolais. It bears the surnames of Frédéric and Chantal, the couple who runs it and who also have another winery in Côte de Beaune. They decided to embark on this southern adventure in 2014, and today they have several plots that together add up to 4 hectares. They cultivate them organically and biodynamically, and vinify according to the tradition of the area so that the grape fully expresses the terroir from which it comes.

The Gamay vineyard for Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Joie du Palais covers a hectare and a half and was planted in the 1950s. It is located on a very steep slope that even reaches a gradient of 50%. Due to these topographical features the plot is cultivated with the help of a horse, and the soils are of crumbly pink granite. This plot produces grapes that are smaller than the rest but more concentrated and balanced.

Once in the winery, the Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Joie du Palais harvest is partially destemmed and vatted in cement tanks. There it ferments with native yeasts and the wine then undergoes a refining of one year in used barrels to avoid being over-affected by the wood.

Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Joie du Palais is a cuvee that began to be developed in 2015. It perfectly combines fruit and minerality, and reveals a pleasant tension on the palate.
