Fleurie "Dame de la Petoche" 2015
Vinified and aged in the old way.
The robust and powerful “Dame de la Pétoche” Cuvée comes from Old Madone vines.
It is then aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. The use of old barrels (4 to 5 years) gives it a fine woodiness which supports and rounds it while preserving its fruitiness. This aging on fine lees feeds it, which makes it an excellent wine for aging.
The name Dame de la Pétoche comes from the 1870s. The chapel was very recently built. The Prussians at war with France did not invade the village of Fleurie. The inhabitants then nicknamed the Chapel of the Madone, "Notre Dame de La Pétoche" convinced that she would have made the enemy flee.
