An estate owned by the direct descendants of Jean Loron, the nine hectares of vines are located right in the village of Fleurie. If we're getting into stereotypes, then this Beaujolais cru is well-known for its delicate, feminine style, with fragrant fruit and floral notes. This is aged in large vats and wooden barrels for eight to nine months - there are perfumed berry notes, particularly blueberry and raspberry, while the palate is nicely structured and savoury, with hints of herbs and liquorice. This one might suit a beef carpaccio.

Best Beaujolais? Fleurie would be top wine choice for many. Could be the easy to pronounce, evocative name? Or that when it's as good as this Loron red, you'll long remember drinking it. No flowers on the label, and all the better for it, as delicious a red wine as you'll find from this corner of France

The Producer

With a history going back over 300 years, Maison Jean Loron knows a thing or two about the production of top Beaujolais. The house is now owned by the 8th generation of the Loron family, Xavier Barbet, who in 2016 handed over the day to day running of the business to Philippe Bardet. Today the house owns 120 hectares of vineyards across seven of the Beaujolais Cru as well as owning and working with growers in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy.

Tom Cannavan Reviews

Don't just take our word for it; here's what wine writer Tom Cannavan has to say:

"Made by the significant Beaujolais producer Jean Loron, from his family estate of 23 hectares in Fleurie, one of the top Villages of Beaujolais. It’s a wonderfully juicy Beaujolais this, with the sweet charms of the ripe Gamay grapes showing through, edged with floral and raspberry elegance, a touch of old roses fragrance, but then a surprisingly firm and mouth-filling palate, the fruit mixing fleshy plum and those keener raspberry and cherry edges, with sweet, solid tannins and good balancing acidity. Impressive, classy Cru Beaujolais"

The Region

The Beaujolais region sits in the central eastern region of France, with Burgundy to the north and the city of Lyon to the south. It shares similarities to Burgundy in terms of climate and it’s a long thin band of vineyards bordered by hills to the west and river to the east but here the similarity ends. The region is characterised by dark granite soils and split between the generic Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages wines, and the more serious Cru, of which there are ten.

Veal with Creamy Mushrooms

Veal can pair well with soft, light reds or structured whites - try a soft, supple Beaujolais form Fleurie with enough acidity to cut through the creamy sauce but not overshadow the delicate meat.

Charcuterie Board

Cured meats match perfectly with light reds with a hint of sweetness, with the fresh, juicy fruit in the wine contrasting with the smoked/salty flavours in the meats. Jean Loron creates a host of delicious Beaujolais that would pair beautifully.

Baked Cheese with Herbs

Match this decadent baked cheese with a ripe, fruity red with enough acidity to balance out the richness of the dish. Head to Chateau de Fleurie from Jean Loron.
