This beautiful red wine comes from two vineyards, one young and one old, both completely organically grown. The young vines provide the fruity character and a nice shine while the old vines provide the structure and depth of flavour.
A few years ago, Gregoire Hoppenot decided to start his own business at Les Roches in Fleurie, after years of experience in the wine business. His first wines were launched in 2018, and with success. His domain includes two slopes with very different characteristics, and between those slopes there is also a lot of diversity, variations in geology, aspects and exposures, and altitudes. He has five different 'climates' across the two slopes. The grapes for this wine come from the vineyards Les Garants and Les Roches. The first is really typical of Fleurie, poor granite soils with quartz are clearly visible here and have a special effect on the vines. The vines in Les Roches are deeper in the ground and dominated by granite and sand.
The harvest is entirely manual in order to select the best grapes directly in the vineyard. The grapes are then transported directly to the winery in crates, where they undergo maceration in whole bunches for a period of 10 to 12 days. This is followed by fermentation at a controlled temperature of 30 degrees with daily pumping over to gently extract the colours and flavours. Finally, the wine matures for 7 months in concrete vats.
The Fleurie Origins has a playful aroma consisting of lots of red fruits such as raspberry and strawberries and red plums. The taste is elegant and it has a juicy structure. The red fruit is also present in the taste. This together with minerals and cedar with a fresh acidity. Together this makes this wine very versatile and goes well with many dishes.
