Fleurie has 13 different “climats,” each producing a very distinctive type of wine. In the sloping higher parts of the appellation, the soils are poor, acidic and dry. They produce fine, highly aromatic wines. Above the village, the soils are deeper and contain clay: the wines are more structured and may be kept for many years.
The Fleurie has an intense crimson colour and reveals a range of fruity and floral aromas: iris, violets, roses, red berries and wild peaches. The Fleurie is elegant and fine, and generally described as “feminine”. We recommend to taste this wine at 13-14°C.
