Tasted from barrel, the 2017 Fleurie exhibits notes of warm spices, ripe cherries and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, tangy and tensile, with a nicely elegant profile, but it seems to be missing the flesh and integration of a less complicated vintage.

Vinous

The 2017 Fleurie is a blend of three parcels as they were affected by hail damage and cropped at just 8hl/ha. It has a light and airy bouquet, perhaps just missing the exuberance one seeks in a Fleurie at the moment. This is quite bashful. The palate is well balanced with a fleshy opening, nice grip in the mouth and tart cherries towards the quite structured finish. Fine.
