Tasting Notes

The 2015 Fleurie from Yvon M├ętras is extraordinary, unfurling in the glass with a stunning bouquet of ripe cherries, raspberries, smoked meats, tar and potpourri, with complementary notes of dark chocolate emerging with air. On the palate, the wine is rich, full-bodied and layered, with considerable depth and concentration, but equally impressive energy and tang despite its unusually rich, powerful format this year. It's a thrilling Fleurie that handles this atypically warm, dry vintage very well. If stored in perfect conditions, it may well enjoy a long life.
