Fleurie, Domaine Niagara

£16.20

Red fruit, blackcurrants and blackberries on the nose. Well structured and rich with hints of spice.
This vineyard is on the top of the highest hill in Fleurie. It is named Niagara after a French weather project from 1911 which consisted of building tall iron pylons across several regions of France. The pylons were supposed to help prevent the formation of, or at least temper, heavy hail storms that can destroy entire vineyards. The most famous of these pylons is the Eiffel Tower! The project ended up being too expensive for the results it yielded and the vast majority of pylons were taken down in the Twenties.
