Fleurie 2022Beaujolais, France
The Clos de la Roilette, a lieu-dit in the village of Fleurie, covers nine hectares of one of the best slopes in the Beaujolais Crus. The clos has an eastern exposure, borders the Moulin-à-Vent appellation, and produces wines that are beautiful when young and have the capacity to age 5-10 years, depending on the vintage. Sourced from 90 year old vines in the Beaujolais village of Fleurie, this entry is juicy, yet elegant with brambly red and black fruits. The mouthfeel is silky with subtle notes of smoke and exotic spice.
