Winemaker's Notes

The Fleurie of Bachelards is a harmonious, fruity, elegant, distinguished, and racy wine with iris and violet aromas. It will age well for at least 5 years.

This wine displays a shiny purple red color in the glass with fine aromas of raspberry and violet. After a fresh attack, the mouth reveals all its character with a nice cherry flavor finish. This "terroir" wine will be most appreciated over the next two to three years with a roasted meat.

"Produced from old vines whose yields were lowered by snow and hail in April (25 hectoliters per hectare), the 2005 Fleurie Chateau des Bachelards explodes from the glass with oodles of waxy red as well as black cherries. A seductive, sensual effort, its medium to full-bodied core boasts terrifically pleasurable waves of flavorful red cherries. This broad wine also sports a long, seamless finish. Drink it over the next 5 years."
Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
Barrel Tasting: 90-92 Points

Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
