"Romain Zordain took over half of the family vineyards in 2012, the other half going to his talented cousin Yann Bertrand.  Now certified organic since full conversion in 2009, Romain and his parents farm 8 hectares of old vines in Fleurie and Morgon.  There is new life in Fleurie and Romain is squarely at the front of the pack, making fabulous, juice-driven wines that are a joy to drink and age exceptionally.   

The juice for the Fleurie Vielles Vignes comes from 60 year-old gobelet vines, well-rooted on sand over granite with a helpful south/south-east exposure.  The Zordain’s plot straddles the border of Morgon and Fleurie, which they believe lends a little more structure to their wines. 2016 was a year complicated by hail, but with a few grapes from his well-known neighbour Sylvain Chanudet, Romain has excelled."
