A single vineyard Fleurie from the Clos de la Roilette vineyard – which was originally named after a racehorse, Roilette. There’s a charming image of Roilette on the front label and in typical French style, not much else to let you know what’s in the bottle. But what the wine is like is a richer, fuller style of Fleurie than the often very light styles encountered in the UK. The Clos de la Roilette vineyard borders the other Beaujolais appellation of Moulin-á-Vent, where a change in soil makes a bigger-boned wine: the same applies with Roilette, so this is a great food-friendly red.
Fresh, tropical fruit aromas. Juicy, pineapple and yellow peach, lively acid structure, good maturity potential.
