Domaine de Fa Fleurie Bundle
Region: France, Beaujolais
Farming: Certified organic, practising biodynamic
Brothers Antoine and Maxime Graillot are the heirs to the Rhône powerhouse that is Domaine Alain Graillot. With their father Alain tending the Crozes-Hermitage vines that he bought in 1985, the brothers cast their eyes further afield for an opportunity to try their own hands at running a winery.
Combining plans to renovate a family property in Beaujolais with the brothers' deep affection for Gamay, they settled their sights on Beaujolais. "Domaine de Fa" is short for "Faye", which is the lieu-dit where the brothers have set up their winery operations in a converted stable.
We are delighted to offer this exclusive, limited-time offer for pre-arrival orders only. This offer will only be valid from 10th to 24th April. Please note that we anticipate orders will be ready for delivery from mid-June.
There is a total of six bottles in the bundle. It is made up of:
- 6 x 2016 Domaine de Fa Fleurie «Roche Guillon»
Please see the details of this wine below.
2016 Domaine de Fa Fleurie «Roche Guillon»

"Roche Guillon" is the name of the single vineyard site on steep slopes of crushed granite and clay where the grapes going into this wine are grown. At 300m altitude, it is one of the highest vineyards in the appellation. This is the sibling duo's second vintage from this site.
