this ’15 Fleurie is just a baby, and it's young taste reminds me exactly (in a good way!) of three favorite childhood candies: cherry jolly ranchers, red vines licorice, and violet pastilles. With a decant it’s already drinking well and showing depth beyond it's fruit, and it’s youthful grip and impressive length and balance signals great things in the coming years as it grows up and into maturity. #kermitlynch #domainechignard #fleurie #beaujolais #terroir #wine #winelover #winelovers #winestagram — 3 years ago
Wine shop guy raved about this 2014 but I found it thin, tart, over-acidified without any other redeeming qualities. No improvement over a couple days and not recommended. — 3 years ago
Highly underrated. For $20/375ml what more can you possibly want?? It wasn't the best year for botrytis across the board but this is impeccably balanced and gorgeous starts peaking on the 4th day open. My 10th bottle so far..... — 3 years ago
