Fleurie Chateau du Chatelard Red 2007
Editorial Reviews for Fleurie Chateau du Chatelard Red
Coming from gentle hills with a bit of rocky terrain this smoky, tobacco scented Beaujolais Villages is a step up from simple Beaujolais. This is a bit mineral toned on the palate with a bit of forced, extracted tannin that adds a touch of bitterness to the otherwise dried herbal, strawberry flavors. I bit too inky and blocky for my palate. 83pts
Dustier nose than the Chateau de Pizay Beaujolais 2007. Gamey with deep plummy fruit aromas. Tobacco flavors in the mouth with a tart tannic finish.
Medicinal nose. Think vitamins. A lighter red. Tannins? Yes, please. Hits hard but fades fast.
A very pleasant and food friendly Beaujolais.
