This is from the 'Champagne' lieu-dit in Fleurie though they are not allowed to call it that anymore after a fight with a certain sparkling wine region further North! We have not had the Fleurie for a while, they make very little and it sells very quickly in France. I have missed it and I am glad we were able to buy some this year. This is very very attractive as ever, red fruited and strawberry kissed it is pure and lithe, quite irresistable and has the brightness and lightness that keeps one coming back for more.

Grape Growing & Wine Making
Jean Foillard is a fervent supporter, like Marcel Lapierre, of the natural wine growing and making methods of the legendary Jules Chauvet. This includes keeping whole clusters of grapes in vats for 2 to 3 weeks at a low temperature before fermentation, using only natural yeast, no pumping, no fining and no filtration. Furthermore he ages his wine in barrels brought from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
