Domaine Roche-Guillon - Fleurie 2011Beautifully Perfumed
A benchmark Fleurie, this is beautifully perfumed and has great depth and elegance.
This family owned domaine is located in the Fleurie appellation in the northern part of the Beaujolais region.
Husband and wife Bruno and Valerie Coporet represent the 4th generation of the family to make wine here.
The vineyards spread over 9 ha and are located on gently rolling hills with granite-based soil.
The south-east facing exposure combined with an altitude of over 350 metres ensure the vines yield grapes with considerable ripeness whilst retaining a delicate aroma and structure typical of the apellation.
In order to retain the vibrancy of the aromatics and intensity of the flavours, the wines are bottled unfiltered in springtime following the harvest.
