Clos de la Roilette Fleurie 2015

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie 2015

"Clos de la Roilette, which is a long-time favorite. Alain Coudert, who took over the winery in 1991 from his father, Fernand, made them. Fernand purchased the estate in 1967 when it was dilapidated. The property, which boasts old vines growing in clay and manganese-rich soils, borders Fleurie and Moulin-a-Vent, a cru famous for producing longer-lived, denser Beaujolais. When the Fleurie appellation was created in the 1920s and the property lost its Moulin-à-Vent appellation and was reclassified as a Fleurie, the previous owner was so livid that he refused to use Fleurie on his label. Instead, he put a picture of his favorite race horse, Roilette, on it, and the name Clos de la Roilette and vowed not to sell his wine in France. His heirs then neglected much of the land.Of the 'regular' bottling of the Clos de la Roilette's Fleurie, we wrote, "Great color, blue edges, crisp, vibrant and alive, lovely berry nose but with some oomph, structure. Pure fruit and steel." Dorothy Gaiter
