2022 Lafarge-Vial Fleurie, Beaujolais, France

Bright, elegant Beaujolais from a fantastic producer.


There are 58 units left in stock.


Sourced from the lieux-dits "Bel Air" and "Sarcillon" on south/ southeastern exposures with granite soils. Vines age from 50-70+ years. Around 15% whole cluster, indigenous yeast alcoholic fermentation in concrete tank for a little over a week with gentle extraction. One year aging in older 228 and 350-liter barrels.


Lafarge, biodynamics, Gamay, granite – sounds like a match made in heaven n’est ce-pas? As if managing the Lafarge family’s iconic domaine in Volnay wasn’t enough, Frédéric and Chantal Lafarge decided in spring 2014 to embark on a new adventure a little further south. Still Burgundy but a new sector, a new grape variety and the inspiring Beaujolais Cru terroirs that come with it. What’s perhaps most beautiful about the new project is that the couple really wanted to invest in something together that would be entirely their own creation. This equal partnership is reflected in the inclusion of both of their names for the domaine’s title and on the label (Vial is Chantal’s maiden name).
