External Reviews for Duboeuf Fleurie Domaine des Quatre Vents
Rich notes of fruitcake and spiced plum mix with hints of tea leaf, creamy black licorice and subtle mineral in this aromatic, well-structured red. Fresh, expressive finish.
Scents of crushed rose petals add to the cool, black cherry fruit intensity of this wine. The earthy grit of the tannin balances the fruit with a scent of the soil, finishing tight, peppery and potent. Itandrsquo;s structured to age for several years and to match braised tripe or other earthy meats.
A Gamay wine from Burgundy in France. 2009 Georges Duboeuf Fleurie Clos des Quatre Vents 750ml
The flowers are evident in this Fleurie, with intense fresh fruit and floral aromas for a gamay. Scents of violets, floral strawberry and cherry place it as Beaujolais, though in a finer sense than you might expect.
The Duboeuf 2009 Fleurie Clos des Quatre Vents andmdash; tasted from tank; and as usual, a cuvandeacute;e from old vines treated to long, cool fermentation andmdash; displays ripe blackberry and blueberry, ocean breeze, black tea, borage, and bittersweet iris perfume in the nose. Silken and expansive on the palate, this is a little less intriguing but even more generous than the corresponding Fleurie Grand Pre, finishing with soothing yet stimulating length, and likely to be worth following for 3andndash;4 years. A very ripe and concentrated but awkwardly woody andldquo;Prestigeandrdquo; bottling of Fleurie did not give me much hope for its post-bottling evolution.
Clean and simple, the light, grapey flavors are deepened by scents of freshly turned earth.
Dark purple-colored with sweet cassis in a ripe but reticent aromatic profile; terrific fruit, purity, and ripeness, medium to full body, but closed and backward; drink between late summer and the turn of the century; an impressive, muscular wine.
