Domaine de Prion

Beaujolais | Fleurie

The wines that Sylvain Chanudet crafts are the embodiment of what we love about the Beaujolais region. Farming a perfectly exposed, steep, granitic slope of ancient vines in the Fleurie lieu-dit of “La Madone,” Sylvain is dedicated to natural viticulture and to guarding the health and vitality of his parcels. Winemaking here is gentle and focused; the hand-harvested fruit is processed with traditional carbonic maceration by way of whole-cluster fermentation. The cuvaison is long—often up to 25 days—and is followed by long aging in cement tanks and occasionally, when the wine demands, large, neutral oak casks.

Domaine de Prion 2012 Fleurie “La Madone”

"La Madone" is one of the most famous climats in Beaujolais. This wine is high in acid, has palpable minerality, good tannic structure and lends blue fruit aromas.
