2020 Clos de La Roilette

Grapes Gamay
Colour Red
Origin France, Beaujolais
Sub-district Beaujolais Villages
Village Fleurie

From the master of Fleurie, Alain Coudert, another stunning wine of sheer beauty and drinkability. Deeply fruited with damson, black cherry and raspberry fruits, backed by gentle spice, mocha and dried herb. In the mouth the wine is supple but builds in intensity of succulent dark woodland fruits, spice and dark chocolate. Shapely and beautifully balanced, these wines are a must for anyone who loves great Beaujolais. Drinking range: 2021 - 2030 L&S (May 2021)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Vivid ruby. Spice-accented red and dark berries on the perfumed nose, along with smoky mineral and floral accents. Sappy, penetrating raspberry and boysenberry flavors show fine definition and spicy cut. In a concentrated yet lively style, finishing long and gently sweet, with a repeating berry note and polished tannins adding gentle grip. Drinking range: 2023 - 2032 Rating: 93 Josh Raynolds, www.vinousmedia.com (Aug 2021)

Clos de La Roilette

From a famous little corner of Fleurie, but ironically the word 'Fleurie' does not dominate their iconic yellow labels, this is because the domaine was created before the Fleurie Appellation existed and the label still retains the original, classic 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.
