2018 Chiroubles (LAFA50218A)
The brambly fruit is fresh and supple, ripe acidity gives an appealing freshness, and there is a delicate note of raspberry on the long fine finish.
2017 Chiroubles (LAFA50217A)
Dense and pure, with rich spicy black fruit and bags of energy and length.
2018 Fleurie (LAFA52218A)
A blend of fruit from Bel Air, destemmed by hand, and Cerçillon, destemmed mechanically. There is an abundance of spicy, plummy fruit, strong floral notes and a bright fresh raspberry finish darkened by a hint of fine earthy minerality.
2017 Fleurie (LAFA52217A)
A blend of vineyards around the domaine that were damaged by frost, with yields of just 8 hl/ha. It is savoury and juicy, with lots of energy and power, and a great deal of concentration; there is lovely fresh red fruit on the finish.
2018 Fleurie 'La Joie du Palais' (LAFA56218A)
Old vines on a very steep slope of decomposed pink granite give an electrifying, structured wine packed with fresh red fruit, juicy acidity and a long elegant finish. It was 08:30 in the morning when we tasted this, and the temptation to swallow rather than spit was strong.
2016 Fleurie 'La Joie Du Palais' (LAFA56216A)
A very steep small vineyard, partially worked by horse. There is 15% whole-bunch fermentation here and the wine is very pure, with ripe black fruit, great energy and length.
2018 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58218A)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. This is a firm wine, with fine structured tannins melting at the edges, mouth-filling fresh fruit and a powerful salty minerality coming to the fore on the long finish.
2017 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58217A)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. Spared by the hail, the vines have given a charming, fluid wine with juicy ripe fruit, firm but fine tannins and a bright seamless finish.
2016 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58216A)
A monopole of the domaine, on granite and quartz soils surrounded by trees. There is more intensity and structure here, and the red fruit is full of energy and depth, supported by fine tannins.
2015 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58215A)
Very rich and black - blackberry, blackcurrant and black cherry - with fine tannins and a long juicy finish.
2014 Fleurie Clos Vernay (LAFA58214A)
A more serious wine than the Bel Air, showing more tannin, greater depth of fruit and more length. Will benefit from cellaring.
2018 Côte de Brouilly (LAFA60218A)
Old vines 12km to the south on blue granite are earliest to ripen of the domaines holdings. The raspberry fruit is dense and rich, and there is a lovely freshness to the fine dark tannins dominating the long elegant finish.
2017 Cote De Brouilly (LAFA60217A)
A new acquisition, leased vines nearly sixty years old on blue granite soil. This is juicy and round, with an abundance of spicy raspberry fruit, structured fine tannins and good persistence.
2016 Cote De Brouilly (LAFA60216C)
A new acquisition, leased vines nearly sixty years old on blue granite soil. This is rich, structured and mineral-driven, with lovely pure fruit and persistence on the finish.
