92Vinous / IWC

Very suave, highly aromatic red fruit and floral pastille scents are complemented by a suggestion of Asian spices and musky herbs. Sweet and seamless in texture, offering alluringly sweet raspberry, cherry and lavender flavors that deftly combine power and finesse...finishes sappy, focused and impressively long, with silky tannins lending shape and gentle grip.

91Wine Enthusiast

...ripe wine that's also fresh and fruity...has some structured tannins, along with a dense texture. At the same time, the red cherry and blueberry fruits have a crisp edge that finishes the wine with fine acidity.

91John Gilman

The bouquet wafts from the glass in a blend of black cherries, dark berries, woodsmoke, gamebird, a touch of pepperiness from the stems and a fine base of dark soil tones. On the palate the wine is fullish, bright and still quite primary, with a fine core, lovely focus and grip, still a bit of backend tannin and a long, tangy and slightly peppery finish.

15.5Jancis Robinson

Delicious herbaceous freshness on the nose, lithe and dry and juicy.


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.
