This Fleurie Gamay is seductive and Fresh.

Domaine de Bel-Air, owned and operated by Jean-Marc Lafont is producing Beaujolais wines of great finesse. It is indeed Jean-Marc’s exemplary work in his very well-located vineyards that is the key to these magnificent wines. The Fleurie “Granits Roses” is from a vineyard located on a slope with pink granite soil. The vines are on average 40 years old.

This wine is seductive, showing notes of fresh cherry, cherry stalk, minerality and hints of violet. The palate is refined, with soft and silky tannins. It pairs well with osso-bucco, blanquette de veau or goats cheese. Drink now or cellar it up until 2023. 100% Gamay.

"This Fleurie “Granits Roses” is showcasing the elegance and power of Beaujolais. It is the queen of the region, very seductive but driven with some good nerves."

At Domaine de Bel-Air, from harvest to the bottling, the process is gentle and simple. All the grapes are harvested by hand with a first selection made in the vineyard. Any damaged or unripe grapes are discarded and the remainder are taken to the winery. The grapes are then sorted a second time on a sorting table to further eliminate damaged berries and grapes that are not ripe enough. Finally, these select grapes are put into an open vat to undergo alcoholic fermentation.

When the process is finished, the remaining grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and the wine is matured in a stainless steel vat for eight months before bottling.
