This is from the ‘Champagne’ lieu-dit in Fleurie though they are not allowed to call it that anymore after a fight with a certain sparkling wine region further North! We have not had the Fleurie for a while, they make very little and it sells very quickly in France. I have missed it and I am glad we were able to buy some this year. This is very very attractive as ever, red fruited and strawberry kissed it is pure and lithe, quite irresistible and has the brightness and lightness that keeps one coming back for more. Silky Silky.

For us, this is the easiest wine to drink now. Predominantly red fruits, flowers and, like the Corcelette, pretty. There is such an easy way about this wine that one can forget how serious it is. The palate is even and integrated, everything in its place. Red fruits, a touch of blueberry, thyme and coal smoke. The tannins are so soft and cashmere like. Persistent and framing but perfectly balanced and threaded into the fabric of the wine. Remarkably elegant and a demonstration that generalisations about vintages can be very misleading.
