Domaine De Fa Fleurie Roche Guillon 2015
Grapes are naturally fermented, semi carbonic style, with 100% whole bunches in concrete fermenters. The ferments last for 7 -10 days and the wines are then matured in large oak barrels (20 and 30 hl Stockinger foudre and some 600lt demi-muid). Certified organic (biodynamic farming). The wine making is the same as above. This is from Roche Guillon, a steep, terraced climat in Fleurie. Rising to 350 metres altitude, it lies on a hillside close to Poncié (which we know well from the Vissoux stable). Coincidentally, another incomer, Frédéric Lafarge, also farms vines on this same hill. It's a beautiful place and the old, biodynamically managed bush vines are rooted in pink granitic sand mixed through with limestone and clay. This is darker and more tightly wound as you would expect with lifted, super youthful carbonic notes a dark core and a twist of inky carbonic. These characteristics follow through in the mouth with the wine needing time or air and food right now. Still absolutely delicious with deep, juicy blueberry and iodine fruit and sappy, crunchy freshness. Expect intense vibrancy and drive and plenty of sticky tannins. A cracking debut.
