LUCIEN LARDY

Beaujolais

Lucien Lardy is a third generation winemaker who cultivates some of the best Fleurie plots in Beaujolais where he practices responsible farming. The vineyard is located in Fleurie, one of the ten Cru in Beaujolais. It is at the “lieu dit” named “Roches” because the bedrock comes right up to the surface, giving the vines a very poor soil in which they have to struggle to grow. The vines average 40 years of age and are planted at a density of 10,000 plants per hectare. 
"Coming from a family of four children, I was the only one to choose winemaker as my profession. My father left me a wonderful legacy that I wanted to honor and preserve. I am fortunate that as part of my daily work I am acting as keeper of a French heritage. I get up early to take a walk in my vineyard which gives me much happiness and a strong sense of freedom." - Lucien Lardy"

Fleurie is one of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais located in the north and producing only red wine.  Fleurie is 1312 feet above sea level known for red wines from the Gamay varietal.

The wines are some of the most highly regarded in the region, which is sometimes referred to as "The Queen of Beaujolais".  Indeed, Fleurie appellation gets its elegance from being sheltered by the Avenas, Durbize and Labourons range.

A quick geology lesson to tell you about the unique landscape where Fleurie vines grow: at the end of the Tertiary Era, an exceptional tectonic and magmatic event changed the landscape forever. The land was thrust upwards and hills formed across the Beaujolais region that were shaped over the years by erosion.

La Madone stands at the highest point of these valleys at 1394 feet above sea level. This magnificent statue is the landmark for the Fleurie vines, which grow from the south-eastern side of the hill up to the Madone chapel.
