Domaine Metrat et Fils Fleurie ' la Roilette' 2001

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/121809 for only £1 as I was the only bidder [although I did also pay a £10 delivery charge] Fleurie is a small appellation for red wines from the commune of that name some 12 miles south of the town of Macon.It is one of the Cru beaujolais and like all red Beaujolais is made from the gamay grape,a cross between pinot noir and a white grape called gouais introduced by the Romans. Some beleive that Fleurie gets its name from a Roman soldier called Florus.My bottle is from the small family concern of Domaine Metrat who have a holding in the 'La Roilette'vineyard [named after a previous owner's racehorse] where the vines are 60 years old.I started my bottle the other evening with a supper of chicken peices. There is some blackberry and bramble style fruit but my overriding impresion was how tannic it was in spite of being over 15 years old.In short I was a little disappointed and glad I only paid £1.
