The 2016 Fleurie, which includes some direct pressed rosé bunches due to the mildew, is perhaps not quite as immediate as the Morgon and demanded a little more patience as it opened in the glass. Eventually, it shows more complexity and nuance than the Morgon: red berry fruit, pressed flowers and a touch of orange pith. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, tensile and fine tannin. It is certainly a lighter style of Fleurie, but it has admirable focus and plenty of energy. Very fine.
