Located between Moulin à Vent and Chiroubles, the FLEURIE “appellation” does not go beyond the town limits. One can see a chapel, built at the top of a hill, in honour of the Madonna in 1875 to thank the Virgin for protecting the vineyards… Trenel’s ‘Fleurie’ comes from some of the best spots which are the “Clos des Moriers”, “Rochaux” and “La Roilette”.
Black Gamay with white juice
25 to 60 years

Maceration of a full bunch of grapes for 8 to 10 days followed by pressing and maturing in tanks or large old barrels for 4 to 5 months. No filed and filter before bottling.
Colour: deep consistent red with beautiful purple tints
Nose: powerfully floral and reminiscent of violets
Palate: layered, balanced and well structured. A superb wine best drunk within the next 3-4 years.
How to drink and serve: it should be drunk between 13 and 15°C. It is the perfect match for a leg of lamb “à la beaujolaise” or lamb with garlic cream as well as white meat.
