About The Wine
Fleurie has a reputation for being one of the most ethereal crus of Beaujolais and few capture the personality of this site like Georges Descombes.
This is one of his most sought-after cuveés. Hailing from old vines in the Grille-Midi section of the vineyard, this is a soft, enchanting red wine of beauty and personality.
It's fine boned but shows great intensity and firmness of tannin. Succulent red fruits, like cherries and strawberries picked fresh from the garden, and a billowy perfume of flowers, fresh herbs and newly-tilled earth.
Truly one of the great Fleuries, year-in-year-out.
About Georges Descombes
Georges Descombes is the son of a Beaujolais vigneron who found his inspiration for his own label in the legendary wines of local legend, Marcel Lapierre.
Whilst working on the bottling line for many of the local producers, Georges was taken with the purity and finesse of the wines of Lapierre who's natural approach has carved a path for so many in the region. Georges has taken his father's traditional farming practices to another level, now having both his inherited and acquired vineyards certified organic and choosing a hands-off approach in the cellar.
Considered the unofficial fifth member of the legendary "Gang of Four" of top-flight Beaujolais revolutionaries, his wines are of the highest repute.
