This first class Domaine is run by the Després family. It is located at the top of the renowned hill of “La Madone”, the granitic hill immediately above the village of Fleurie where most of the Domaine’s 19 hectares of are located. This hillside is often considered to have the best growing conditions for wine in the area.

 

Arnaud has taken over the work started by his father Jean-Marc, and the quality of recent vintages are testament to his hard work and skill both in the vineyards and the winery.

 

The Vieille Vignes is from 80 year old vines and has more depth and richness than most Fleurie whilst retaining a lovely elegant lift.

 

The wine has a very deep purple appearance with a nose full of ripe red fruit aromas – raspberry and strawberry with a hint of spice. The palate is full, with red fruit flavours layered over a warming spice and mineral core – very impressive.
