Georges Duboeuf des Quatre Vents Fleurie 2015

Overview

The 2015 Domaine Des Quatre Vents is distinct and supple with the fragrance of violets, typical of a classic Fleurie. Fresh aromas of black fruits, cherry stone, mild spices permeate the nose, while the same fruits and spices are ripe and fresh on the palate. There is a subtle earthiness that surfaces with time and silky tannins and finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The south-facing vineyards of the Estate tumble down the hillside to the road leading out of Fleurie. Two winemakers undertake caring for the 12 hectare (29.7 acre) property, where most of the vineyards surrounding the house are more than 50 years old and trellised in the traditional Gobelet style. They are planted mostly in the pink granite soil that is the hallmark of the Fleurie Cru. The average harvest is 425 barrels, which is conducted manually, in whole bunches. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine sees no oak.

Interesting Fact
The vineyards and winery have been owned by the Darroze family since the mid-1950s, when it was bought by the father of the current owner. The Dubouef family has had an exclusive agreement with them for many years.

Serving Hints

This wine is best accompanied with dishes such as tarragon chicken, oven-roasted salmon, roast lamb or beef, spicy dishes and aged cheeses.
