The vineyard of "Les Garans" is situated to the north-east of the village of Fleurie. It is acknowledged as one of the finest sites for growing top quality grapes because of its combination of unique soil composition and having a very specific microclimate. Once harvested, by hand, the fruit is fermented in whole bunches of grapes in open vats. Fleurie "Les Garans" is a soft, perfumed wine which marries tenderness with richness.

Wine tasting
  • Tasting Note
    Sparkling a lovely garnet colour, le Fleurie "Les Garans" 2012 offers to the nose a floral bouquet. Aromas of mint stand out giving way to spicy notes. Ample on the mouth, this wine reveals under-woody flavors: fine notes of wild strawberry are present with pretty tannins on the finish.

Press review
    • Fleurie "Les Garans" 2008 - Cellarmarque- November 2009 - "Beautiful Aromas"Beautiful aromas of red summer fruit and parma violets which are reflected on the palate. A delicate almost floral dry wine full of confectioned red berry flavours with a smooth full finish.
