Muddy purple umber. Plum, hoisin and nutmeg. Salty, lacking fruit. Age has gotten the better of this; or off bottle.

Vintage 2018 | a feast of raspberries, vibrant and frivolous taste | paired with a deer burger and gratin of courgettes and tomatoes

Shining example of traditional Beaujolais, if just a tad more rustic than contemporaries of Fleurie.

1964. Amazingly fresh and vibrant. Like perfectly aged Cote de Nuits.

Unfortunately this was paint thinner. But the bottle looked cool.

Delicious, bigger than “new” style gamay with less acidity and great body

Established winemaker, producing greedy airy/deep wines. This Fleurie 19 (red fruits and flowers) is still a bit young .. and takes a year or two to unify.

Vigneron établi, produisant des vins gourmands et profond. Ce Fleurie 19 (fruits rouge et fleurs) est encore un peu jeune.. et nécessite un an ou deux ans pour s’unifier.

Airy with lots of aromatic floral nuances and generous red/black fruits. 2018 is very opulent! The carbonic maceration which gives this English-sweet side characteristic of Beaujolais is here associated with an aging giving it a subtle Burgundy character which suggests a good aging potential over 3, 4 years. A sure value on Beaujolais.

Un Fleurie qui fait honneur à l’appellation. Aérien avec beaucoup de nuances aromatiques florales justement et du fruits rouges et noirs généreux. 2018 est très opulent! La macération carbonique qui donne ce côté bonbon-anglais caractéristique des beaujolais est ici associé à un élevage lui apportant un caractère bourguignon subtil qui laisse présager un beau potentiel de garde sur 3, 4 ans. Une valeur sur du Beaujolais.

Worked well with carpaccio and octopus, at opening night of Cafe ArtScience, where the full bottles weren't yet available.
