Georges Duboeuf La Madone Fleurie 2015


Overview

The 2015 La Madone has a vivid garnet color, and aromas both floral and fruity. It combines finesse and elegance, with a palate that mimics the nose. This is a rich, silky and fleshy Cru Fleurie wine, with a hint of bitter cocoa on the finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The south-facing vineyards are more than 20 years old and trellised in the traditional Gobelet style. They are planted mostly in the pink granite soil that is the hallmark of Fleurie. Semi-carbonic maceration and malolactic fermentation takes place in temperature controlled stainless steel vats. The wine sees no oak.

Interesting Facts
The name “La Madone” evokes not just a sanctuary that can be seen from far away, but also a “climate” of great repute that nestles inside the Cru Fleurie. As there are not many, especially in the Beaujolais, each “climate” claims its own glory ~ vineyards seem to give wings to the pride of men! And to make sure it has all the luck on its side, this one claims to be under divine protection.

Serving Hints

La Madone Fleurie is an excellent accompaniment to grilled steak with sautéed potatoes, as well as aged cheeses.
