Fleurie, Beaujolais

Docteur Briçou


A remarkable wine from a vineyard over one hundred years old in Moulin-à-Vent. The site is one of the highest in the appellation, at a similar altitude to Fleurie and likewise its soils of decomposed pink granite and quartz mirror its neighbour, rather than the heavier soils we expect to find in Moulin. As such this is a wine that in both style and spirit is closer to a great Fleurie. This wows with a remarkable density of fruit and a tightrope balance in which every little detail appears to be in place. Breathtaking now, it will reward drinkers for many years to come.
