Food Pairings for Fleurie Domaine de Gry-Sablon Dominique Morel
Beaujolais is, at its best, a deeply pleasurable wine and Morel’s wines encapsulate this style better than most. Dominique Morel has 12 hectares of vineyard in Beaujolais and Fleurie. The vines are up to 70 years old, something that accounts for the intensity of his wines. To sum up his philosophy, Morel says: “I make wines that I like to drink, with lots of fruit, good colour and a rounded mouth-feel’’. `Domaine de Gry-Sablon` Fleurie is vibrant ruby red with flecks of purple. The 2010 displays fine, elegant cherry blossom and red berries on the nose, with gentle spice. The palate is concentrated and juicy with underlying tannins to support the ripe fruit of this vintage. It is pure and fresh on the long berry fruit finish.
