DetailsThis was a delightful find. We were very happy with Jocelyne Depardon as our Fleurie producer, but Jocelyne has stopped making wine. So we were very happy when one of our best, Franck, told us he now had a fleurie. And when we tasted it, I remarked to Franck it did remind me of Jocelyne's, with a not-quite-typical touch of spice, although with a different style. Imagine my surprise to hear this comes from the same vineyards. It makes me very happy to know someone as good as Franck is taking care of Jocelyne's vineyards, and making cracking Fleurie. This is a very worthy successor, and it will be a facinating tasting to compare the vintages and the winemaker's signatures from 2009 to 2015, on onwards.
