Bevvy of the Week – Fleurie

Fleurie

You may remember a few weeks back I recommended a light red wine called Beaujolais (same name as the region) in the post Bevvy of the Week – The Change from White to Red Wine. Well this week I am recommending a wine called Fleurie. It also comes from the Beaujolais region in Burgundy and is made from the same grape, Gamay.

Bevvy of the Week - Fleurie - Vineyard

There are ten Cru vineyards (best vineyard sites) in Beaujolais and Fleurie is one. So if you did try the Beaujolais wine and you want something along the same lines, why not go for a Fleurie. It’s fuller and richer than the basic Beaujolais wine and is packed full of red berry fruits.

You should be able to pick this wine up for around €15.

Sláinte, Cheers,

Patrick
