Cave de Fleurie la Chapelle des Bois Fleurie 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

Cave de Fleurie was founded in 1927 by the women of Fleurie who had taken over the running of much of the appellation during the First World War. Today the Cave is recognised as one of the leading cooperatives in France and their La Chapelle des Bois comes from one of just 13 named vineyards in Fleurie. This single vineyard Fleurie was awarded a bronze medal at the Paris ‘Concours Général Agricole’. An expressive nose of raspberry, strawberry, blackcurrant and cherry intertwine with delicate floral notes. Silky tannins are framed by refreshing acidity. A perfect partner for seared tuna or soft ripened cheeses such as Brie or Coulommiers. Enjoy now to 2018.

Chateau I'Arrosee has a character with two clearly defined special features. Firstly, the domain is unusual in having two types of land. Part of the vineyard is planted on the sheltered slope to the south west of Saint-Emilion and has the maximum exposure to the sun. This situation is ideal for helping to ensure that the grapes are perfectly mature when they are harvested and the chalky clay soil provides a balanced supply of water and minerals for the vines. The other part of the vineyard lies at the foot of the slope where it is hotter. Having the two types of soil increases the chances of obtaining a very good grape compared with a land with a single type of soil. Another particularity is that the merlot grape variety is blended with 20% cabernet franc and. unusually. 20% cabernet sauvignon. Cabernet sauvignon. the great vine of the Medoc region, is not usually planted on clay soils but grows easily here where it is exposed to full sun. Read less
