Producer Note
With over 42 years experience, Olivier Ravier is one of the most iconic and respected
winemakers in Beaujolais. He is a former President of the Beaujolais growers
association and has been appointed as an expert at the National Institute of the
French wines appellation by the French government. His in-depth knowledge of the
region, its climate, and the Gamay variety, is second-to-none. Living in the heart of
the Fleurie appellation, he produces wines which overflow with typicity from the
Beaujolais terroir.


Vintage
2018 was an excellent vintage throughout Beaujolais, similar to 2017, 2015 and 2009.
The early months of the year experienced heavy rain showers which replenished the
soil’s water reserves. The summer was hot and dry, which allowed the berries to ripen
slowly and regularly; and the vines to maintain excellent health. Despite the hot
temperatures, overall the vines did not suffer from drought due to the ample water
supply provided in the spring. Ideal conditions at harvest resulted in healthy, ripe
grapes high in sugar and showing beautiful concentration.


Vineyard
Fleurie is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and is renowned for the elegance and finesse
of its wines, which is linked to the pink granite soils. The vines which produce this wine
have an average age of over 40 years old and these old, gnarly Gobelet trained
vines thrive in granitic and sandy soils, which accounts for the aromatic finesse of this
cuvée. The grapes are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness.


Winemaking
The grapes were vinified in the traditional way, with a semi-carbonic maceration
lasting for 10 to 12 days. Fermentation was temperature controlled throughout and
was followed by malolactic conversion, resulting in a softer style of wine.


Tasting Note
Quintessential Fleurie with subtle floral aromas surrounding a core of deep red fruits.
The palate is full of finesse, with a rich and silky texture and an attractive hint of bitter
cocoa on the finish.
