Ruby red in colour, `Indigène` displays elegant notes of raspberry, cherry and dried rose. It is well-structured on the palate with bright red fruit flavours, lifted acidity and polished tannins.
Fleurie `Indigene` is a blend of young vines from two parcels, 'Les Roches' and 'Les Garants'. The vineyards are situated around 300 metres above sea level on south and east facing slopes, trained in a double cordon system. The soil is very light and sandy over a granite bedrock. Fleurie `Indigene` is the first of the Hoppenot wines to be organically certified.
Grégoire Hoppenot was named ‘Discovery of the Year’ in 2021’s Revue des Vins de France. Following two years as director of the Chapoutier-owned Maison Trénel in Beaujolais, the young Grégoire Hoppenot installed himself in Fleurie, where he has leased nine hectares, along with a small plot in Morgon. His vineyards comprise several enviable parcels: Les Moriers, Les Garants, Poncié, La Roilette and Les Roches in Fleurie.
