Dominique Morel 2016 - Fleurie

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

Fleurie is one of the ten Beaujolais crus classés. I really love this kind of wines and they gain in fame by joining the style of Burgundy wines. I follow the work of the winemaker Dominique Morel for a long time and he shows us in this cuvee the whole know-how he has. Here we can feel splendid aromas of strawberries and blackberries with a lot of freshness. I am really proud to bring up to you this wine. 

 

Terroir

The appellation of Fleurie is famous for its unique terroir made of pink granite. This soil provides an exceptional colour to the wine and powerful aromas of red fruits such as strawberries and blackberries. This terroir gives a delicate style to the wine so you can drink it alone or during a meal.

lecepage Grape variety

Gamay is the unique grape of this appellation and it expresses aromas of strawberries, blackberries and peppers on this granitic soil. Originally from Burgundy the Gamay was finally moved to Beaujolais because of the fear of making it more famous than the Pinot Noir. Gamay grapes produce rich wines with few tannins.

lemillesime Vintage

Lots of climatic troubles happened in this region: a violent storm struck in May followed by hail that destroyed a huge part of the vineyards. Smooth temperature and 12 days of rains caused anxiety to the winemakers. They had to do everything they could to avoid the development of diseases on the vineyards. Hopefully August was dry with hot temperatures and a lot of sun that help the winemakers by chasing humidity and diseases off the grapes. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Created in the beginning of the 1900 by Mr. Besson, grandfather of Dominique, the winery was transmitted through generations. Ini-tially of 2 hectares, the winery is now large of 18 hectares and produces 12 appellations. It is thanks to the talent and skills of Dominique Morel than we can taste this wonderful cru of Beaujolais.
