Fleurie Folie comes from the youngest wines at Grand Pré which are "only" 30-60 years old. It's meant to be the most approachable wine right after bottling, but still packs plenty of delicious Gamay and Beaujolais joie de vivre into each bottle. Like everything at the domaine, this wine is naturally vinified without any added yeast or SO2.
