Description

Fleurie La Chapelle des Bois is made by a wine co-operative called La Cave des Grands Vins de Fleurie. The co-op was founded in 1927, largely by the women of Fleurie, who has become used to working together, during and after WW1, when many of the men from the region were fighting and many would not return. Today the co-op is one of the largest producers Fleurie AC (as well as Brouilly, Chirouble, Morgon, Moulin A Vent, Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages) and has 330 member-winegrowers with over 350 hectares of vineyards. Fleurie is probably the most famous of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and is often referred to as the “Queen of Beaujolais” due to its feminine, soft and elegant style (the fuller-bodied Moulin à Vent would be the King). Fleurie, like all red Beaujolais is made from 100% Gamay grapes. The Fleurie La Chapelle des Bois is a “Cuvée Terroirs” (one of 13 such named vineyard sites in Fleurie) and it is representative of its vineyard location and aspect more than a simple village wine. La Chapelle des Bois area has different characteristics from the rest of the area and is on higher ground than most of Fleurie. It tends to be a little bit fuller in style than other Fleurie. It is made using the Beaujolais vinification technique of semi-carbonic maturations and is aged for arounf 8 months in stainless steel vats. Will age for 4 to 5 years.
