Jane Eyre Fleurie
- Beaujolais, France
From a single parcel of eighty-year old vines, Jane made five barrels in 2017, using 60% whole bunches and only five hundred litre old oak barrels. Racked once, bottled August.
Enveloping richness and spice with some cacao nibs on the nose, ripe and soft but with impressive structure around the cherry-drenched palate. By no means a light Beaujolais, this is very sexy, and shows the aromatic and generous potential of good Gamay.
Melbourne-born Jane Eyre-Renard, one of the pioneers of the growing micro-negotiant movement, continues her inexorable rise with a super set of 2017s, following on from her critically lauded 2016s. Based in Burgundy since 2003 she has paid her dues at some top domaines including de Montille and Comtes Lafon and still assists the winemaking at Domaine Newman, whilst making her own wines in a facility shared with Dominique Lafon. Her wines, whether from Beaune, Nuits, or Beaujolais, display her distinctive style - charming and inviting, with supple tannins and soft but bright fruits. Gentle extraction and oaking, and early bottling means these are among the more immediately accessible Burgundies in our portfolio. Jane is rightly pleased with her wines in 2017, a vintage which she says you can really see the terroirs shine through, where hotter years can obscure both the vineyard and the level.
