If you think that serious Beaujolais is an oxymoron, then think again. We tasted this spectacular Fleurie at a 'Burgundy 2014 En Primeur' tasting, alongside some very self-important Grand Crus, and it blew them all away. This is the Gamay grape at the peak of its powers; incredibly sensual and aromatic, yet deep and rich and lusciously textured. It's delicious now, but we wouldn't be surprised to see this drinking beautifully in twenty years' time. Drink 2017-2035.

It comes from a tiny 1.3 hectare plot on the slope toward Moulin à Vent near Poncié, so high that its picked a little later than Bel Air. 

Jancis Robinson: "Dense and fine with real meat and potential. Very serious wine. It will be fascinating to see how this vintage and this wine evolve." 17 points
