Henry Fessy Fleurie Gamay Burgundy France 2009
blackberries on the nose....real full mouthfeel with some great acidity leading to a slightly sweet finish than lingers.
As effusively praised on <a href="http://www.wypr.org/Cellar_Notes.html">Cellar Notes</a>, although once again they spelled the name incorrectly on their web site. The best Beaujolais Hugh Sisson has ever tasted.
Typical Beaujolais...Fruit heavy! Aromas of Black Cherry, strawberry, and kool-aid. This wine was a medium bodied easy drinker. The fruit on the nose carried all the way through to the mellow finish with just a hint of earth. This fruity favorite is perfectly balanced, with crisp acidity, and soft almost non- existent tannins. The fruit is the show, and it's delivered with finesse.
Smooth with mouth notes of pear and plum. Light tannins and an after tast of slight acidity that enhances the tannins to a great impression.
External Reviews for Henry Fessy Fleurie Gamay Burgundy France
WS 90pts - Winemaker Notes - This wine has impressive colour and intense aromas of red and black fruits such as blackberry and blackcurrant. There are also spicy notes along with liquorice on the finish. With great balance, this is a concentrated, well-structured wine with very pleasant silky tannins.
The Fleurie 2009 reveals a very pleasant aroma of red fruit and floral hints of peony. An elegant wine where the acidity and tannins create impressive harmony.
After much research, Jean Pelissier, brother-in-law to Henry Fessy, decided on a plateau called Bel Air, in the heart of Le Paradis of Brouilly.

Rubinrot, violette Akzente. Reife Pflaumen und Brombeeren, auch eine Spur Cassis und rauchige Noten im Bouquet, ergänzt durch den feinen Duft verblühter Rosen. Sehr harmonisches Gaumenbild, das an einen Korb voll roter und schwarzer Beeren erinnert, ergänzt durch etwas Zimtwürze und schwarze Schokolade; insgesamt sehr samtig und rein, harmonischer Abgang.
