FLEURIE – Le Vivier Domaine Yohan Lardy
France, Beaujolais 2016
Fleurie, the Queen of Beaujolais. This beautiful wine is bursting with ripe red berry fruit flavours but soft and fresh, with delicate light tannins. Zut alors.
Interesting story this one… a single vinyard located in a hamlet Le Visier, the new kid on the block of Beaujolais, his family had a domaine in Fleurie and the son has taken a 2 hectare plot and put to use everything his dad taught him, a natural artisan wine maker. The perfect combination of experience and youth making unbelievably good wine from one of the most famous regions on the planet.
