Clos de la Roilette Griffe du Marquis Fleurie Gamay 2010

Remarkable. Light black cherry juice, a bit of tertiary funk, artichoke, resin, spice. Lithe and has lasted admirably but a touch ripe. — a month ago

Clos De La Roilette

Fleurie Gamay 2020

Deep and jammy, but not overly dark on the palate. Very nice fruit. Easy to drink. Very light tannins. Good acid. Medium body (trending toward medium minus). Nice young plum (even slightly cherry) and floral notes on the nose. A touch of hay. — 3 months ago

Cuvée Tardive Fleurie Gamay 2019

Good, solid Bojo. Lots of granite-laced plummy fruit. A little cherry and spice too. Good flavor intensity. Acids a bit low. But nice crunch from the minerality. A noticeable amount of tannin too. — 2 months ago

Comtesse de Vazeilles Le CLos Fleurie Gamay 2018

N: Caught between Burg and CDP.
Pepper, garrigue, souis bois, black and red, animalistic in the best way. it smells tarry, spice, dark fruits. ( so far, it’s giving the last Clos de Roilette a run for it’s money)
P: light textured and deep, ( ha) tarry, plums, liquorice, chalky blackness.
Amazing Fleurie!

Vendange Tardive Fleurie Gamay 2018

The Tardive really is an uptick in depth though this is such kick ass Beaujolais I’ve always felt it deserves its own category (Kick A- Beaujo). Black cherries, but seriously black, oodles of fruit but it’s the minerality & acid that sets it apart, along w the depth. Medium bodied, taut( not tight somehow). Ribena with cracked black pepper nose. Blind tasting w friends but guessed to be every region but Beaujo. If I remember the history right, this is more of a Moulin Vent property, so makes some sense it has such gravitas- which is what it is, a joyous wine with gravitas. Dressner importer. Oh, and it’s ok to try now, it’s not infanticide. 25$ on sale- that’s just stupid. — 3 years ago

Champ de Cour Moulin-à-Vent Gamay 2013

All about minerality and texture. Fruit is partly hidden but who cares, this 2013 is beautiful. Young but approachable. High content of manganese in soil like Roilette. — 7 years ago
