Fleurie Cave des Grands Vins de Fleurie 2002

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought a magnum bottle of this wine from the website www.bidforwine.co.uk/auctions/show/123284 for only £10.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 takes its name from a Roman soldier called Florus.My bottle is from the Cave des Grands Vins de Fleurie a co-operative group responsible for around a third of the total production of the appellation.The label is unusual in that it is not a stick on peice of paper but instead is gold writing printed directly on to the glass.There is a picture on the group's website.I started the bottle last night with some pasta.It is a bold and full bodied wine.There is plenty of fresh blackcurrant,blackberry and redcurrant style fruit with soft but structured tannins and more than a hint of pepper or spice on the finish. In short this is a lovely wine that would pair many foods
