FLEURIE CLOS DE LA ROILETTE
2016 Cuvée Tardive Domaine Coudert
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)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.

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.
