Sweet roses, hints of smoke and licorice on the nose. Wonderful freshness and mineral quality, persistent on the finish. Slightly tart (but never bitter) cherry pit character, showing a bit more flesh with several hours aeration. Firm and structured expression of Fleurie that maintains its balance and sense of delicacy. You should expect this to do well in the cellar, 8-10 years.

Brilliant ruby-red. Intense, mineral-accented red and dark berry aromas pick up a sexy floral quality with air. Concentrated yet lively, offering juicy raspberry, bitter cherry and blood orange flavors that show excellent clarity and back-end thrust. Shows a touch of candied licorice on the gently tannic finish, which lingers with outstanding persistence. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

Much more open than 6 months ago. Good brightness. A bit fleshy at this stage but open for business. Excited to taste more from this producer.

This held up 3 days in the fridge without any degradation. Easy drinking that we had with chicken and pizza. Grapey with licorice and smoke. Delightful.

More brooding and tannic than I expected coming out of Fleurie...Beautiful dark berries, slightly candied and held up with a through-line of acidity.
