Fleurie Domaine de la Madrière 2017

Stéphane Aviron


Terroir: Fleurie is one of the top crus in Beaujolais producing wines of deep fruit and great structure. Stéphane Aviron’s Fleurie is sourced from a family owned hillside vineyard on the western side of the appellation. Exposure on these steep slopes face south and southeast with soils of loose clay and limestone.

Vinification: Grapes are handpicked and sorted upon arrival at the winery. The must is macerated in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12-14 months in a combination of new and one-or-two-year old barriques.

Additional Information

A true Burgundy in many ways. This Fleurie shows very similar characteristics to a fine Moulin a Vent with loads of ripe jammy fruit and rich, structured tannins. This is a truly age-worthy Beaujolais.

    "Bursting with scents of raspberries, bergamot, cherries and smoked meats, the 2017 Fleurie Vieilles Vignes Domaine de la Madrière is medium to full-bodied, broad and velvety, with a sappy core of fruit, powdery tannins and a long, flavorful and youthfully chewy finish. This is a real success in a challenging vintage for this appellation."
