Bright brilliant color, reflecting garnet and violet nuances. The nose is fine and elegant, developing pronounced notes of cherry and blueberry. Violets and peonies complete this complex nose, giving it great distinction. On the palate, the wine is expressive, with a freshness that highlights its balance, structure and aromatic richness. It evokes mineral tones balanced by a pleasing ripeness. This combination gives the concentration and density specific to great wines, but with the great finesse and elegance of Fleurie. The finish is enhanced by delicate spicy touches, with remarkable length.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Fleurie La Reserve sees 20 to 30% of the crop raised in used oak. It offers light red currant aromas on the nose, which is just a little one-dimensional at the moment. The palate is clean, well-defined and quite juicy for the vintage, although it never really takes off on the finish like you would hope. Easy-drinking pleasure

Wine SpectatorSmoke and forest floor notes lead the way in this savory red, layered with subtle hints of baked plum, cured tobacco and spice box. Lightly tangy and balanced. Drink now. 800 cases imported.
