The 2019 Fleurie is very pretty, soaring from the glass with scents of raspberries, peonies, warm spices and subtle soil tones. Medium-bodied, bright and lively, with terrific purity of fruit, lively acids and fine, melting tannins, this Bel Air-based blend has turned out beautifully. Drink: 2021-2035.

Formerly named 'Bel Air' this wine is now a blend of two old vine parcels (Bel Air & Sarcillon) dating back to the 1950's. 

Fred Lafarge and Chantal (Vial) Lafarge have pieced together a small 4-hectare domaine in the Beaujolais, with vineyards in Fleurie and Chiroubles. They have found vielles vignes (ranging from 30 to 70 years old) in 5 terroirs, most of which were already organic. In the Lafarge style, they immediately began their conversion to biodynamic viticulture. In one of the crus, Joie du Palais, the slope is 52%, and a few of the rows must be worked by horse.
