Frédéric Lafarge and his wife Chantal established Domaine Lafarge Vial in the spring of 2014. They managed to secure several parcels of vines within Fleurie and one small adjoining parcel of Chiroubles, with buildings within the lieu-dit Bel-Air, in the commune of Fleurie. The vineyards enjoyed biodynamic viticulture from the outset, mirroring the Lafarge family’s approach in Volnay.
"Chiroubles is Fleurie’s next door neighbour. Despite being a different cru, this plot lies alongside Bel-Air, which itself is opposite the domaine buildings. This is a tiny parcel of 0.35 hectares. The average vine age is over 45 years. A wine pervaded by wonderfully bright red cherries, this is spherical and luminous.
