Fleurie is widely considered the most delicate of the crus, covering an area of 855 contiguous hectares (about three square miles). The soil here is unique, almost entirely made up of pink granite. Maison Passot farms 50 year old vines in the Grand pré area of the Cru on east facing slopes.
Hand harvested grapes that undergo primary and malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and cement vats.
