Dominique Morel Fleurie 2021
Region: Fleurie, Beaujolais, France
Bottle size: 75cl
This wine has fragrant violet and red fruit aromas on the nose and a palate bursting with bright fruit and supple tannins. It is an elegant wine with a long, persistent finish, and typical delicacy of the Fleurie appellation
Dominique's vines in Fleurie face south-west and cover 2.5 hectares. The average age of these goblet trained vines is over 45 years with average yields of 52 hectolitres per hectare. Soils here are poor, stony and granitic which accounts for the perfume and finesse of the best wines of this region.
This family-run winery based just north of Fleurie dates back to the early 1900s and has been run by current Winemaker Dominique Morel since 1967. Dominique’s philosophy is to make wines he likes to drink, with plenty of fruit, a good colour and a rounded mouthfeel.
