Winemaker’s notes:
Vissoux 2017 Fleurie Les Garants cuvée should reconcile anybody who’s ever been disappointed with Beaujolais. It shows that there are truly great terroirs within the Crus, like that of Les Garants which used, in fact, to be part of the Moulin à Vent AOC area. This is a really complete Fleurie, which combines finesse and elegance with concentration and depth. It is very enjoyable in the fruit of its youth but holds back a few surprises to unveil after a few years cellaring.

Critical Acclaim:
“The 2017 Fleurie Garants is a warmer, southwest-facing site, and its bouquet is correspondingly richer and more sun-kissed than that of Chermette’s Poncié, exhibiting notes of ripe, plummy fruit, rich spices and subtle hints of loamy soil. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, ample and expansive, with a generous core of fruit, framed by fine tannins.” 93 Pts – Wine Advocate

“A deep and spicy expression of Fleurie with impressive complexity already. The palate has a lithe, juicy and layered style with fresh, fine-grained tannins, holding long and fresh. Drink or hold” 92 Pts – James Suckling

“This oak-aged wine is smoothly textured, full of ripe black fruits. Spice as well as the layer of tannins give richness. Black cherries and berries add depth to the wine that is likely to age well. Drink from 2020.” 92 Pts – Wine Enthusiast

“did not know until last year (or had known and forgotten) that the climat of les Garants is down in the valley near Moulin-à-Vent and Clos de la Roilette and used to be sold as Moulin-à-Vent in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The wine is deeper and even more black fruity in personality than the Poncié in 2017, offering up a pure and sappy nose of black cherries, sweet dark berries, dark soil tones, roasted pigeon, a touch of coffee bean and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and complex, with a full-bodied format, an excellent core of ripe fruit, lovely soil signature, a touch of backend tannin and a long, vibrant and very promising finish. This is outstanding.” 93 Pts – John Gilman
