Le Quartier du Cru Beaujolais, Fleurie (6 BOTTLE CASE DEAL)
This product is currently sold out.
We believe that Gamay should have some savoury notes (and less of the notorious bubblegum flavours).
Our Master Blender Samantha Bailey chooses to work with people who also make Gamay in this way - selecting particular yeasts and partial carbonic maceration, followed by alcoholic fermentation at a low temperature, to get the fruit flavours without the tannin allowing Samantha to blend a wine that is light, savoury but still concentrated.
Textbook Fleurie. An abundance of woody spice on the nose followed by raspberry coulis and fig notes which continue on to the fresh fruit finish.
Fleurie, with its higher acidIty but lower tannin levels, can happily be matched with a huge range of foods easily solving the "what to serve with what" dilemma. Serve slightly chilled and try with all styles of chicken, pork (belly or chop), pork and sage sausages, salmon or tuna.
Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
