Fleurie, Château de Fleurie, Maison Loron 2021
Really good Beaujolais has gone through a renaissance over the past few years as its quality continues to rise, and Château de Fleurie is one those. Their 2021 vintage is gorgeous with a lively freshness and luscious texture with bright, expressive cherry and red berry fruit.
Fleurie is my favourite Cru Beaujolais and guess what? Château de Fleurie is my favourite Fleurie made by the Loron family at their lovely 18th century château. Perfect for this time of year, slightly chilled.
