This Fleurie Les Moriers soars from the glass with scents of mulberries, ponies, rose petals, licorice and spices. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and succulent, it's pretty and charming, with velvety tannins and lively acids.
This 10-hectare family domaine, its holdings dominated by Fleurie Les Moriers, is a fine source of classical Beaujolais. Before the AOC system was defined, wines from this sector were frequently traded as Moulin-à-Vent, and that makes sense when you taste them. Winemaking at this address is traditional: whole bunches and macerations that last the better part of two weeks, followed by maturation in foudre and tank. Only two cuvées are produced, and both are worthy of readers' consideration.
