The appellation owes its name to a Roman legionary and not to any old bouquet of flowers. This municipal naming of 800 hectares produces, on an exclusively granitic base, velvet wines.
Rich and fine, their elegance and charm often make this wine the most feminine among all the Beaujolais vineyards.
Frederic Montangeron took back the family's 14-hectare estate in 1996, of which 10 were in the Fleurie appellation.
The soil of “La Madone”, made of pure pink granite, allows the expression of flowers and the mineral character of this vineyard. A wine of feminine and distinguished velvet, a pure pleasure.
