Domaine Coudert

France, Beaujolais
http://www.clos-de-la-roilette.com/

From a famous little corner of Fleurie, the soils here are more limestone based and as a result gives wines with more structure than most Fleuries. This wine is named after a racehorse 'La Roilette' owned by a previous owner of the area, hence the silhouette of a horse head on the label. The Couderts own the largest part of this old estate, and pick from old vines at maximum maturity to make fully coloured wines with great juicy richness.
