Fleurie

2018

100% Gamay. Fleurie is one of Jean-Paul's two largest cru holdings, with 6 hectares all in the famous lieu-dit of Grille Midi, a south-facing amphitheater of vines on poor, sandy, decomposed-granite soils over hard granite rock. The difference between this regular Fleurie bottling and his Grille Midi bottling is vine age and elevage. This Fleurie is from the younger vines, clocking in around 40 years old (versus 60 years and up for Grille Midi). As for his other wines, the vinification is traditional Burgundian. The maceration is 3-4 weeks in concrete, the shortest of all along with that of his Côte de Brouilly. Aging is also in concrete for 6-8 months (versus aging in foudres for the Grille Midi bottling).
