Fleurie is certainly worthy of its name! It possesses great charm and delicacy, with its luminous raspberry color, aromas of lilac, violet and gooseberry. Very supple and silky in the mouth. Leaves a beautiful impression of fine aromas. It is the most delicate of the Beaujolais Crus.
2021 Beaujolais wines show pretty bright colours with a purplish reflection and deliver aromas of red and black fruits mingling with slightly spicy notes.Vintage review
