Established in 1908, Domaine Chaintreuil is a small, family-owned estate that has expanded to six times its original size in just over a century. The six-hectare vineyard is run by oenologist Gilles Chaintreuil, who represents the family’s fourth generation. Gilles stays true to the century-old traditions passed down to him from his ancestors, while implementing new-age techniques. As a result, his family's wines get better every vintage. The Fleurie La Madone is named for the small chapel situated atop the hill which has overlooked the cities of Lyon and Macon since 1866. The Madonna perched above the chapel is said to watch over the people below, as well as the region’s 800 hectares of vineyards. Fleurie has a very unique and special terroir, with southeastern exposure at an altitude of 350 meters. The granitic soils produce wines with good structure and power, which also have the capacity to be aged for a long time. 


The Domaine Chaintreuil Fleurie La Madone pours a deep purple with a brilliant ruby rim. Aromas of strawberry, cherry and raspberry dance from the glass, along with floral notes of peonies and violets with underlying hints of a distinct granite minerality. On the palate, it is focused and concentrated with lots of juicy red fruits. The wine is precise with a firm structure of full-bodied, yet soft, silky tannins that drift over the palate during the long finish. The subtleties and nuances of the wine are entrancing, and with time the wine opens up and becomes more complex. It is a powerful southern Burgundy-style red, with perfectly balanced with the soft sensuality for which Fleurie is known. This wine can be aged up to 10 years and is the perfect pairing for grilled meats, small game, or soft and creamy cheeses.
