2020 AOC Fleurie 'en remont'

Julie Balagny

Regular price $96 750ml Sale

This wine is made from her oldest vines in Fleurie, which are 60 and 100 years old - grown on granite mixed with pebbles and sand, and another parcel of granite and quartz. The grapes are cooled for 24 hours and then undergo 5 weeks carbonic maceration. The wine is raised in old barrels for 10 months. Not fined or filtered, and no added SO2 at any stage.

The nose is closed and tight, but you can sense its greatness – something is there hiding, waiting to come out. Feels clear and clean, with a little welcomed VA lift. On the palate this is immaculate. Slippery and layered, with creamy cherry and chocolate fruit, laced with blueberry and boysenberry fine detail. Tastes amazing! Pure silk in the mouth. Lots of depth too, but lighter somehow. With air, aromas of wild berry fruit come to the front, with the faintest savoury edge. Tastes so good, incredible potential here. Drink slightly chilled.
