Olivier Ravier Fleurie Beaujolais 2021

A silky Fleurie with subtle floral aromas surrounding a core

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.
Recently he has also branched out to producing wine in the Mâconnais region
bringing his expertise in the vinification of the Chardonnay grape.
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.
