Product Description:

"Fleurie is the most feminine of the Beaujolais Crus. Yohan LARDY is farming his old vines in a sustainable way and vinify this plot "La Vivier" separately the most naturally as possible in order to reflect the characteristics of his terroir. Meaty, savory, lovely smooth texture and very juicy on the palate." - Winery

"At only 27 years old Yohan Lardy has truly come to his own by returning to his Beaujolais after completing a BTS Viti-Oeno and spending a number of months working in Chile for an estate harvesting and winemaking. Without hesitation he purchased 2 ha and is now working organically a total of 6.5 hectares in Beaujolais, primarily in Moulin-a-Vent with small plots in Fleurie, Chenas and Beaujolais-Villages. His vineyards are striking - with lots of diversity, excellent south facing exposure and picturesque backgrounds. The vines are not trellised and quite old at 40-111 years old. His vines are carefully maintained and are surrounded by the beauty of poppy flowers. All work is manual including harvest with an average yield of 45hl/ha. As expected from his vineyard practices he allows for native yeast fermentation and adds no sulfites.

The Fleurie is from a .5 hectare plot called 'Le Vivier' with 40-70 year old vines. Sandy and blue granite soils with south facing vines. The wine experiences 18 days maceration resulting in an elegant, pretty wine, a truly excellent first vintage for this dynamic young vigneron." - Importer
