Didier Desvignes Domaine Du Calvaire De Roche-Gres Fleurie Les Garants is a beautiful, deep carmine hue with purple-blue highlights. On the nose, perfumed floral aromas of iris, violet and wild rose combine with red forest fruits. It is full of finesse and well balanced on the palate, silky textured with a great depth of fruit, minerally acidity and striking elegance and purity. Long and ripe on the finish.

The Les Garants vineyard in Fleurie is planted on pink granite soils and has a southwestern exposure. The vines are 65 years old and are pruned in the gobelet style; a number of tending techniques are utilised throughout the year, including budding, tying-up, trimming and green harvesting or bunch thinning.

After manual picking and sorting of the grapes, both on the vine and upon arrival at the winery, the bunches are de-stalked and the grapes macerated for 10 to 12 days before being gently pressed. The wine was matured in French oak barrels after a light racking, before indigenous bacteria began the malolactic fermentation. This Fleurie spent 6 months on its fine lees and was lightly filtered before bottling.
