More about

This was a delightful find.

Those of you who who have been customers a while will remember Point du Jour.

We were very happy with Jocelyne Depardon as our Fleurie producer, but Jocelyne has stopped making wine.

So we were pleased when one of our best, Franck, told us he now had a Fleurie. And when we tasted it, I mentioned 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.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

This is a beautifully weighty wine but not one fraught with too much gravitas. The acidity, though very well balanced, keeps it fresh and lively. Aromas and flavours of cherry predominate.
