My first time with the Fleurie, man was it singing. Macerated red fruits with gentian and camphor notes, more than a touch of Brett (but not overwhelming). It's hard to beat Cote du Py Morgon as one of my favorite wine, but I may like this even a touch better. — 8 months ago
So light in color I thought something was wrong. Upon tasting, nope, it's all right. The minerality and zinginess from those volcanic soils shines through. This starts as bright fresh cherries with a little cinnamon stick, dried flowers, and earth, but finishes with brilliant complexity, waves of floral and fruit and bitter herb flavors. Just a really cool wine. — 9 months ago
