Fleurie les Moriers Jules Desjourneys 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

91 Points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous: "Dark ruby. Smoky, deep-pitched cherry, blackberry and violet scents develop vanilla and peppery spice nuances in the glass. Broad and sappy, offering sweet dark fruit flavors that stretch out and pick up a licorice quality on the back half. Unusually rich for a Fleurie, delivering strong closing thrust, chewy tannins and lingering dark berry compote notes. I’d never have guessed that this was from Beaujolais, much less from Fleurie, so my score is diminished." 90 Points, Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Fabien Duperray Fleurie “Les Moriers” Tres Vieilles Vignes, which Fabien has farmed organically for the longest time, was cropped at 13.35 hectoliters per hectare and is raised for 12 months in oak (20% new) and 12 months in tank. It has a very pure bouquet that shows a little more finesse and focus than the “La Chapelle des Bois”: blueberry and cassis at first, later joined by those same crushed violet petals. The palate is medium-bodied with sweet and rounded, almost melted tannins. It displays impressive weight, dense, concentrated black fruit with a powerful black cherry finish with touches of cloves and white pepper lingering on the aftertaste. Drink 2018-2025.
