95James Suckling

Crushed rose-petal and cherry aromas. Like an elixir! Full body, tight tannins and vivid fruit, acidity and brightness. The length is fantastic. Straight from cellar. Wonderful length and clarity. Gorgeous.

93Vinous / IWC

Raspberry liqueur, lavender pastille, licorice, succulent flowers and smoky minerals on the intensely perfumed nose; an Asian spice nuance builds in the glass. Juicy, appealingly sweet and sharply focused, offering concentrated red and dark berry and spicecake flavors lifted by a spine of smoky minerality. Sappy, concentrated and penetrating, showing excellent finishing clarity, sneaky tannins and lingering spiciness.


France, Beaujolais, Fleurie

Fleurie is a village located near the center of Beaujolais, and the Beaujolais Cru appellation named for it encompasses nearly 2,000 acres of vineyards. Many admirers of Beaujolais consider the Fleurie appellation to be one of the best, if not the best, of the Cru appellations and its wines are generally lush and aromatic. Some 500,000 cases are produced annually. Like nearly everywhere else in Beaujolais, the only grape grown is Gamay. Fleurie the village is charming and quaint and attracts many tourists.


Red Wine, Gamay, Cru Beaujolais

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
