Fleurie is a more complex expression of Gamay with richer flavors coming from the granite and sandy soil. This wine has a lot more going on and is usually earthier and has more body than the light & juicy Beaujolais Villages. Bring this one if you're looking to impress your friends with a slightly more sophisticated palate!

About the winery 

Domaine Roche Guillon represents five generations of winemakers on the same hillside. Now Bruno and his family, the new generation, take the best of this plot planted by Bruno’s great grandfather. 

The vinification and aging have remained the same over time in order to preserve the characteristics of the wine: fruit, soft tannins and richness are the hallmarks of the field. The vineyards spread over 9 hectares and are located on gently rolling hills with granite-based soil. The south-east facing exposure combined with an altitude of over 350 meters ensure the vines yield grapes with considerable ripeness while retaining a delicate aroma and structure typical of the appellation.
