Maceration of wholes bunches during 8 days followed by pressing and maturing in tanks for 6 months. Unfined and lightly filtered before bottling.​

"Fleurie" A.O.C. is located in the heart of the Beaujolais Crus. Its name, meaning "flowered", has nothing to do with the luxurious flora of the region. An old Roman legend tells the story of a legionnaire called Fleurus, who settled in the area. However, the wines of this appellation are often described as the most feminine and floral of the region. They are smooth on the palate and develop aromas of violet, rose and iris, given by the pink granite soil the vines grow in. Trénel's Fleurie is produced on two parcels: "La Madone" next to the chapel overlooking the village and "Les Moriers". The pink granite sand is interspersed with alluvial silty clay sectors, that bring fineness and delicacy to the wine.​
