Hint of brûlée on the nose. Lovely ripe strawberry fruit well-covered in dusty tannins. Texture forward of fruit. Good stuff. Chewy, properly chewy. Hint of minty/fennel herb and a bit of spice. Needs food. I’d like a seared duck breast with redcurrants here. Or Persian lamb salad with pomegranates. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 Rating: 16.5 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com (May 2018)

Lurid magenta. A complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe boysenberry and black raspberry, along with pungent floral, spice and herb notes. Coats the palate with sweet red/blue fruit, candied violet and spicecake flavors that deepen and spread out steadily with aeration. Conveys a suave blend of richness and energy and finishes extremely long and nervy, displaying harmonious tannins and resonating florality.

Clos de La Roilette
From a famous little corner of Fleurie, but ironically Fleurie does not dominate their iconic yellow labels, this is because the domaine was created before the Fleurie Appellation existed and still retains the exact same design! In fact up until 1926 the vineyard owners felt they were in Moulin a Vent and were a little disappointed to be put in to the 'new-fangled' Fleurie appellation, The soils here are an unusual mix of manganese and clay, this gives wines with more structure and power than most Fleuries. This wine is named after a favourite racehorse 'La Roilette' owned by a previous owner of the farm in the early 1900s. This is why the unchanged label from the 1920s carries the silhouette of a horse's head. 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. They are without doubt one of the finest domaines in the Beaujolais.
