The wine is produced from Carra’s 1.5 hectare vineyard in the lieu-dit “Clos des Déduits”, in the area of Fleurie.

Of the top ten Cru sites of Beaujolais, Fleurie is one of the top three.  The wines show finesse, fullness, and flavor.  Fleurie does age well for 3-5 years from vintage. The area was named for a Romain General named Floricum, not for the word flower in French.  The size of this AOC is 875 hectares of grapes (2,161 acres) and about 180 examples of this Cru are available on the market.   This Cru is known as the “Queen of Beaujolais” and the earth is slightly unusual for having blue color, due to magnesium in the soil.

Intense carmine red color. Subtle floral aromas of violet, peony and a hint of cinnamon spice. Full bodied with a fruity attack. This wine will reach its best after a few years of cellaring.
