This is not simply a Fleurie, it is Fleurie “Les Moriers,” and les Moriers is a steep vineyard that penetrates down into the Moulin-a-Vent zone. The result is like a marriage of the two. That explosive, floral Fleurie character emerges from an intense, regal, tannic, Moulin-a-Vent chassis. It is loaded with flavor and has an intense palate feel. Wine maker notes All grapes are harvested by hand Vinification is natural, in keeping with the local tradition, including whole cluster fermentation, and vatting for 6 to 8 days before pressing Fermentation takes place in stainless steel and cement cuves Wine is aged in old foudres (large oak barrels) for 13 months Blending occurs in the spring, and then the wine settles for 3-4 months before bottling. Wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered
Producer Even after many successful years practicing his craft, fourth-generation vigneron Michel Chignard claims to be a novice. He is a modest man, kind and courteous, but in every aspect of his winemaking one clearly sees a passionate perfectionist. In 2007 Michel turned the management of the family domaine over to his son Cedric, who is carrying on this philosophy with great pride and has already managed to prove himself in his first few vintages. The Chignard family is also blessed with vineyards in one of the best sites of the Fleurie appellation, Les Moriers, an arrowhead-shaped parcel that juts right down into Moulin-a-Vent vines. Their eight hectares of vineyards are over sixty years old, keeping yields naturally low. These old-vine root systems also run very deep, accessing minerals from the granite subsoil and giving Chignard’s Fleurie a trademark gout de terroir and great freshness.
