About
Domaine des Grands Fers

Situated in the heart of Fleurie, Domaine des Grands Fers was established by Christian Bernard's grandfather in 1890. Currently, Bernard owns a total of 10.3 hectares of Gamay planted to the southeast facing slopes in the famous terroirs of La Madone, Les Garands and Les Moriers.

Introducing Domaine des Grands Fers

The classic Fleurie characteristics, including the wines' floral perfume notes, are the result of the incredible soils of crushed and crystallized ancient red granite. Christian ferments all his different terroirs separately, whole cluster, employing carbonic maceration for a twelve day period. After a six month elevage in oak foudres, he blends his various plots into what becomes his signature Estate bottling.

Being very careful in his selections, Christian blends only his best wines; the rest is sold on the bulk market. In exceptional vintages Christian makes a Clos des Grands Fers bottling that is made solely from the remaining 110 year old vines from his family's original planting
