Domain: Marc Delienne
At the heart of Fleurie’s vineyards are some vines that overlook the rest. These belong to Marc Delienne who arrived in the Beaujolais region in 2015. After a career in IT in Paris, this wine enthusiast launched himself into a sector he was truly passionate about. His conviction that Fleurie still has something truly special to give is a great motivation in his work!
Marc Delienne learnt the viticultural trade at the Trévallon domain in Provence with Eloi Durrbach. In 2015, he purchased a property with 14 hectares in Fleurie, believing strongly in the region’s potential for growth in fine wine. He set out to convert the domain to organic production, then to biodynamics in 2016. The domain has now been fully certified for 2 years. Since this wine makers first vintages, he has been making flavourful and balanced wines with delicate tannins and notes of red fruits and blueberry. One to watch in Beaujolais!
