2014 Yvon Métras - Fleurie (93 pts) #winereview @vins _beaujolais · ℹ️ Fleurie may not have the historical pedigree of Moulin-à-Vent nor the stacked list of rock star producers like Morgon. It does have a great name and most importantly Yvon Métras. Fleurie is located between Moulin-à-Vent and Chiroubles. The Eastern side has sandy soils and is lighter and more floral like the wines of Chiroubles. The Western side the pink granitic soil contains trace amounts of Manganese like Moulin-à-Vent, which reduces grape yields and concentrates the berries · 👁 Medium- ruby color, lighter than Moulin-à-Vent · 👃Medium+ intensity on the nose. A little funk upon first opening. Aromas of soil, ripe raspberry, ripe cranberry, rose, rhubarb, and tomato leaf · 👄 The wine is dry, medium acidity, medium- plush tannins, medium alcohol, and medium- body. Flavors are brieflyight red fruits, followed by some mineral rocky note. Then things get interesting with a florals. The medium+ length finish ends with what I can best describe as the water that you replaced from your Valentine's day rose bouquet 🥀 · 🔔 This wine is super elegant, albeit lighter in style. It has a bit more complexity and intrigue than the Moulin-à-Vent. Tasted over 3 days and these just keep getting better and better each day. Highly recommend decanting them for full enjoyment. Now I want to try his Vieilles Vignes bottling 😰 if I can find it 🤷‍♂️ · #gamay #fleurie #oldvines #yvonmetras #moulinavent #france #frenchwine #instagood
