Although ther are many "Clos" in the C te d'Or, they are quite rare in the Beaujolais. Clos des Quatres Vents covers 12 hectares. The vines surround the lovely building, hidden by a windbreak of pines, and extend along the hillside to the edge of the village Fleurie. An intense, brilliant garnet colour and intense, jammy, dark berry aromas with a hint of spice (pepper). A surprising Fleurie for its very fine, elegant tannin structure. A noble, racy, persistent wine of excellent origin, this Fleurie is sure to age well.

For over 40 years Georges Duboeuf has been the Beaujolais region's most renowned n?gociant and is today regarded in the wine world as the "King of Beaujolais." Born in 1933 in Pouilly-Fuiss?, the son of a winegrower, Georges began selling his family's wines from the back of his bicycle to now-legendary local chefs such as Paul Bocuse and Paul Blanc. In 1964, Georges realized his dream and founded his own company: Les Vins Georges Duboeuf. Over the years, Georges has developed long-standing relationships with the region's top growers and winemakers. Georges is involved in every aspect of his enterprise and is known for his passion and his legendary palate. In 2003, the Duboeuf family opened a new, modern winery in Roman?che-Thorins. The following year, the Duboeuf and Deutsch families jointly purchased Ch?teau des Capitans in Juli?nas. With annual sales of 30 million bottles, Georges Duboeuf is one of the world's best-known French brands.
