"Bursting with aromas of sweet cherries, raspberries and roses, the Maison Jean Loron has enjoyed considerable success with their 2018 Fleurie Château de Fleurie. Medium to full-bodied, layered and lively, with fine tannins, good concentration at the core and bright acids, it’s keenly priced and worth seeking out."

"The Boisen and Barbet families are descendants of the original 18th-century owners of this château in the center of Fleurie. The domaine covers 11.1 acres, all of it planted on pink granite and farmed without chemical inputs. It ferments in a Burgundy style (not carbonic), then ages for six months in cask, producing a generous, fruit-forward 2018 with plenty of structure in the end to tame all that luscious fruit. Built to age. "
