While plump in fruit, this spicy blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvdre and Cinsault balances flavors of preserved black plum and cocoa against savory, animal nuances. Full bodied and velveteen in texture, it's a pleasantly rustic, concentrated red shaded by earth, leather and smoked meat. Soft tannins are welcoming young but the wine should maintain peak through 2024.

65% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Carignan

Ruby red in color. A nose dominated by notes of cocoa, cherries, and spice. On the palate, the wine is bold with blackcurrant, cherry, and roasted nut flavors. ~winery notes

Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is the Rhne Valleys oldest continuing grower/ngociant firm. Thomas Jeffersons visit in 1787 was its first contact with the United States; he called the wines justly celebrated. During the 1890s, Gustave Vidal married a daughter of the Fleury family. Thanks to her dowry, they replanted the vineyard following the phylloxera outbreak. Then, in the 1920s, the House took an interest in other wine-growing regions throughout the Rhne Valley (See Line Extensions).

In 1984, Ets. Guigal acquired the company. This step was a logical continuation for the Vidal-Fleury and Guigal families, who had always worked together. Indeed, Etienne Guigal (Marcels father) was hired as a vine-grower and cellar master by Joseph Vidal-Fleury in 1924. When the Vidal-Fleury family decided to sell the House, as none of its heirs felt like taking over the reins, it naturally turned to the Guigal family. As result, the company remains family run. Vidal-Fleury is managed in absolute independence with its own winemaking, logistics and commercial team.
About J. Vidal Fleury
Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is the Rhône Valley's oldest continuing grower/négociant firm. Thomas Jefferson's visit in 1787 was its first contact with the United States; he called the wines "justly celebrated".

During the 1890s, Gustave Vidal married a daughter of the Fleury family. Thanks to her dowry, they replanted the vineyard following the phylloxera outbreak. Then, in the 1920s, the House took an interest in other wine-growing regions throughout the Rhône Valley (See Line Extensions).

Vidal-Fleury is managed in absolute independence with its own winemaking, logistics and commercial team.

In 2006 Vidal-Fleury began investing to modernize its winery facilities, installing state-of-the-art technology; in 2008, it built a new cellar specifically dedicated to maturing the wines. In addition, Vidal-Fleury's vineyards are overseen with 100% self-sustaining management practices.

Long considered one of the most respected producers in the Rhône Valley, Vidal-Fleury carries on under the watchful management of Head Winemaker Guy Sarton du Jonchay.
