The winner if this search is the Fleurie I've included in this month's selection. This is quintessential summer drinking with it's bright cherry aromas and light refreshing palate - typical of the Gamay grape. Jean Loron, who's name adorns the label, was born in 1771 and built a reputation for making good quality Beaujolais in the 18th Century. When his son Jacques merged the business with his father-in-laws's (Chavet), it brought together this two of the most highly regarded producers in this region and started wine-making dynetsy. Things have moved along since those days, and the completion of their state-of-the-art cellars in 1998 stands as testament to their commitment to modern wine-making.
