Fleurie, Château de Fleurie, Maison Loron 2019
The 2019 and 2018 vintages of Château de Fleurie have both had a coup de coeur, the highest accolade in the Guide Hachette des Vins, the French wine guide I invented more than 35 years ago. Beaujolais reputation has suffered from the over promotion of Beaujolais Nouveau, obscuring just how very good their best wines can be. This is Beaujolais and the gamay grape at their very finest - a real rich, delicious mouthful of a wine, made by the Loron family at their lovely 18th century Château. Perfect for spring and summer. I love it.
How does the wine taste?
This lovely Fleurie is fruity with intense aromas of blackcurrants and blackberries, liquorice and black chocolate. It is rich and well balanced with silky tannins and a persistent finish. It is approachable and very food-friendly, and goes perfectly with pork and salmon.
