‘La Madone’ is one of the emblematic terroirs of Fleurie, comprised of an outcrop of granite that towers steeply over the surrounding vineyards with a famous chapel at the top (hence the name). Justin’s small parcel comes from vines owned by his mother, who lives near the top of this famous hillside.
