Situated on the knoll of Poncié and the hill of Montgenas, terroir on slopes of crystalline rock, at the same time dry and demanding, combines the conditions needed for rediscovering the historic qualities that made Fleurie's reputation. Gamay, black varietal with white juice. Bright brilliant colour, reflecting garnet and violet nuances. Bouquet, fine and elegant with notes of cherry and blueberry. Palate, extremely expressive, with a freshness highlighting the balance between structure and aromatic richness.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Fleurie Le Pré Roi was 20-30% aged in oak barrels. It has a tightly wound redcurrant and wild hedgerow-scented bouquet that unfolds in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet red cherry and strawberry fruit on the entry, but it stumbles towards the finish and feels rather attenuated.

Neal Martin, August 2016
