Welcome to Tesco Wine by the case.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
This cuvee of Fleurie is elegant and fine, it has notes of strawberry, red fruits and a blackcurrant thread on the finish.
To enjoy this wine at its best, drink within 3 years of purchase.
The appellation, whose name has nothing to do with flowers but refers to a Roman legionary, extends in a single block over 870 hectares of the commune of Fleurie.
There are two distinct areas. In the sloping higher parts of the appellation at the foot of the "La Madone" hill that overlooks the "cru" and offers outstanding views over the vineyards, the soils are poor, acid and dry. They produce fine,highly aromatic wines. Above the village, the soils are deeper and contain clay : the wines are more structured and may be laid down for many years.
