Description

Domaine de Bel-Air dates back almost 180 years. In 1986 Jean-Marc Lafont and his wife Annick, took over the estate. By 1989 the vineyard work started down the organic path. Their 23 hectares span the great Crus as well as Beaujolais-Villages and Beaujolais Blanc. This is an organically farmed vineyard with an average age of 50 years. Grown on the granite that is a key quality soil for Beaujolais.

Fleurie is a well known Cru Beaujolais wine appellation for red wines from the Gamay grape variety. The wines are some of the most highly regarded in the region, which is sometimes referred to as "The Queen of Beaujolais".

A Fleurie is typically light, silky and supple, with characteristic florality and bright aromas of blueberries and red fruit. Fleurie's widespread recognition is often attributed to its evocative name. However the region is actually named after a Roman general, Floricum, rather than for any floral traits in the wine.

100% Gamay.
