Impressively aromatic with crushed berries, dried flowers, nutmeg and other spices. Full-bodied, round and flavorful with a light vanilla and chocolate aftertaste. About 20% new barrels.
The 2015 Fleurie Clos des Quatre Vents was surprisingly reticent on the nose, possibly due to a touch of reduction, although there appears to be plenty of fruit underneath. The palate is sweet and ripe on the entry, dark cherry and raspberry fruit, hints of blueberry, fine tannins with good weight and persistence on the finish. This is a charming Fleurie with the structure to suggest that it will give 7-8 years of drinking pleasure.
