Yohan Lardy Beaujolais Fleurie le Vivier 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

A lovely and substantial Cru Beaujolais that is floral and spicy, exudes aromas of green earth, rose, and violet. Quite mouth filling and elegantly structured with balanced acidity and gentle tannins. It must absorb some of its character from the .5 hectare vineyard in Fleury, which is densely planted with 60-70 years old gamay vines. Yohan is a young winemaker who possesses great skill, and picks his vineyards impeccably. He is a disciple of his father, winemaker Lucien Lardy. He is also inspired by BeaujolaisO natural winemakers (like The Gang of Four) and fuller bodied, Burgundian-like Beaujolais. This wine is made with whole cluster and spontaneous yeast fermentation. No more than 3 grams of sulfur is added at bottling. 2013 was a cooler vintage with a typical harvest. Pair with cured meat, cheese, grilled or roasted chicken. -Sadie, Wine Buyer
