Fleurie 'La Madone' Albert Bichot 2016 Red Wine, TIM

Package Size6 x 750ml

One of the cru villages, Fleurie has been called the Queen of Beaujolais because the wines are feminine – and presumably regal, and authoritative. Carbonnic maceration ensures that red fruits come through clearly in this wine, though a period of ageing in a variety of media (oak barrel & stainless steel vat) and blending before bottling ensures that it takes on colour, a bit of body, and some tannin. This makes it a slightly fuller and intense Beaujolais that will keep for some years although we hasten to add that it is showing very well presently as well.
