Full tasting note and wine making –
Cotes du Rhone Vidal Fleury is a classic Rhone red produced from a blend of grape varieties including Syrah and Grenache. They produce a deep ripe fruity red that has lovely spice notes mixed with brambly fruit.
At Vidal Fleury red wines and selected whites are matured in oak casks and a proportion of wines are matured in new oak. This restrained and selective use of oak ensures that the wines are supported and complemented by oak maturation but never dominated.
Vidal-Fleury vinifies many of its grapes at wineries close to the vineyards from which they come to ensure the grapes remain in good condition and do not have to travel long distances. Winemaker Guy Sarton du Jonchay is present during the vinification process to ensure quality is maintained.
The Producer –
Founded in 1781, Vidal-Fleury is located in the midst of the Côte-Rôtie vineyards in the Northern Rhône, and is the oldest continuously operating wine producer in the Rhône Valley. Since the early days Vidal-Fleury has established a reputation for the production of high quality wines which show individuality and the typicity of the different Rhône appellations from which they come.
Vidal-Fleury’s renaissance began in 1984 when it was purchased by the Guigal family whose support allowed the business to flourish whilst still allowing it to operate independently.
However the real and most substantial changes have taken place during the last few years. A brand new winery opened in 2008 allowing Vidal. Shortly afterwards new winemaker Guy Sarton du Jonchay joined the company bringing with him extensive winemaking experience in the Rhône Valley and he has made great improvements to the wine range.
Vidal-Fleury’s most significant vineyard holding is the 2.5 hectare Côte-Rôtie La Chatillonne located on the Côte Blonde. This vineyard produces the company’s flagship wine and is internationally renowned for its quality.
Vidal-Fleury sources its other grapes and wines from reputable sources around the Rhône Valley. They take a keen interest in the vineyards and the health of the grapes to ensure only the highest quality wines are bottled under the Vidal-Fleury label.
