949 Fleurie Appellation

The 949 vintage, our Estate’s iconic wine.

This red wine is made from different parcels of vines, all of which have an average age of 25 years, located below the Château de Poncié and on the Montgenas and La Brirette hillocks. With 20% of its maturation done in weathered oak barrels and a maceration period of 8 to 12 days, this wine is generous, fruity and velvety. It goes well with a wide variety of dishes.

949 has been certified organic (AB) since the 2020 vintage 🌱

Terroir

Grown on pink granite soil, the 949 vintage blossoms on gently sloping hillsides near the village of Fleurie.
While our vines on the Montgenas hill define the structure of the vintage and those on the Brirette its fruitiness and elegance, those located below the park bring freshness.
The diversity of its exposures makes it an ideal vintage.

Viticulture

The low density of planting, about 6,000 vines per hectare, allows a large leaf surface, thus avoiding competition between the roots. The use of light equipment avoids soil compaction and encourages precise soil preparation.

Vinification

Vinification takes place in 50hl concrete and stainless-steel vats. The grapes are cold macerated, whole, or partially destemmed. No sulfur is added during vinification. The fermentation, which lasts 8 to 12 days, allows a delicate extraction of the aromas, letting the terroir shine through.
Pigeage is gentle and traditionally done by foot.

Special vintages

2018

An ideal year, characterized by a spring that alternated between sunshine and rain, and a perfectly sunny summer. Well-formed and compact clusters with optimal ripeness.
Average yield ~42 hl/ha (maximum permitted: 56 hl/ha).

2019

Another year with plenty of sun and rain. Wines with less color extraction, but with a long and fine finish in the mouth thanks to the control of grape maturity. Average yield ~38 hl/ha (maximum permitted : 56 hl/ha). 

2020 - BIO

2020 was a sunny vintage. Spring and summer were very hot, leading to an early harvest on August 15. Grapes at full maturity.

2021 - BIO

2021 was a cool vintage overall, with a rainy spring. A perfectly ripe harvest produced fresh, fruity wines, revealing all the typicity of Gamay of the Fleurie terroir.
