2018 CLOS DE LA ROILETTE Fleurie Cuvee Tardive 75cl (Beaujolais, France)
Style - Elegant
Grapes - Gamay
Tasting - Super refined and yet loaded with floral aromatics and sweet, dark fruit. Some salty, liquorice and umami tones and mineral characteristics develop nicely in the long and airy finish. This is fabulously deep and rich, a regal cru Beaujolais.
FYI: Festooned with very high scores from the critics this one. Tardive - 'late' - here is the suggested waiting time for the wine. As in, let it age to enjoy at its best.
