Introduction

Beaujolais and the world of Gamay are thriving, with quality-focused producers and friendlier price tags than in the Côte d’Or. Move over Beaujolais Nouveau!

Our two Beaujolais producers are a Moulin-à-Vent family, the Labruyères, who now also own Domaine Jacques Prieur in Meursault and a Volnay family, the Lafarges, whose holdings now stretch to Fleurie.

The Beaujolais crus have benefitted from the arrival of established Burgundian producers and know-how. Just as the Labruyères stress that they make Moulin-à-Vent rather than Beaujolais, for the Lafarges, Fleurie is centre-stage.

Villages

FLEURIE, CHIROUBLES & BROUILLY wine

FLEURIE, CHIROUBLES & BROUILLY

The evocatively named village of Fleurie produces a wine every bit as delicate as its name. One of the ten Beaujolais crus, it is the palest, the prettiest and the most finely perfumed. Sandy soils produce the lightest bodied wines, whilst towards Moulin-à-Vent to the east, clay creeps into the mix, with wines of consequently greater structure.

Perhaps most important are the granite soils which add a nervy mineral underpinning to the best Fleuries, such as the two we are offering here.

Domaine Lafarge Vial

moulin a vent wine

MOULIN-À-VENT

The only commune in Beaujolais which belongs administratively to Burgundy rather than the Rhône. A bureaucrat’s splitting of hairs perhaps, but growers here would claim a difference in mind-set and indeed the wines can appear uncannily Pinot Noir-like.

Heavier, clay-based soils contribute to wines of greater structure and ageing potential.
