Chateau Grand Pre Fleurie Beaujolais 2018

A delicate and natural style of Fleurie with a bouquet of
violets and a combination of wild spicy strawberries and
fresh red cherries.


Producer Note
The Château de Grand Pré comprises a beautiful 18th Century castle complete with
vaulted cellars, a "lieu dit" vineyard and an eight hectare family domain in the
Beaujolais region. The winery is located in the heart of Fleurie where they own six
hectares of vineyard, with a further two hectares in the village of Morgon. When Louis
and Renée Bertrand bought the domain in 1972, the vines were old and the cellars
were in ruins. They took the estate in hand and gave it a new lease of life, replanting
and rebuilding. Today it is run by their grandson Romain Zordan, who has brought a
modern and organic approach, with sustainable cultivation in the vineyard. The
estate has been certified organic since 2012. Naturally vinified, these wines are a
true expression of their Beaujolais terroir.


Vineyard
Fleurie is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and is famed for the elegance and finesse of
its wines, which is often attributed to the pink granite soils. The vines are pruned very
precisely into a Goblet shape and a green harvest is performed encouraging
concentration in the remaining berries. The vines are 30 years old and yield
approximately 40 hectolitres per hectare. The granitic soil in the vineyard imparts a
mineral characteristic to the resulting wine.


Winemaking
This wine was made using natural vinification methods. The grapes underwent
multiple sorting processes in the vineyard and cellar. Carbonic maceration took
place for 10 to 15 days, in order to gently extract the complexity of aromas. This wine
was vinified without the addition of sulphur and only minimal sulphur was added at
bottling. Fermentation took place using wild yeasts that are naturally present on the
grape skins, retaining the typicity of the terroir. The wine was then aged for several
months in 600 litre oak barrels. The wine was bottled without filtration, resulting in a
slightly cloudy style.


Tasting Note
A naturally vinified wine expressing distinctive Gamay characters with a floral
bouquet of violets and red cherries.
