Villa Ponciago Fleurie la Reserve 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points David Schildknecht (Wine Advocate): The Villa Ponciago 2010 Fleurie La Reserve seems to have to upped its game since I tasted it for Issue 196, and there is now a deep sense of toasty, nut oil richness to complement the tart-edged, piquantly accented bright fruit that was already in evidence on that previous occasion. Hints of mint and basil reminiscent of those found in the corresponding Beaujolais-Villages add further interest to a fine value apt to be worth following at least through 2015. (Jun 2013)

As Fleurie goes, this is a very accessible, quaffable wine from the 2010 vintage. Many of the amateur reviews (the best, in my opinion) suggest about 88 points which seems about right. Still, this is a nice soft very Fleurie wine with some acidity and tannin to allow up to 5 years bottle aging. The nose has lots of violet scent and a touch of a woman's boudoir (one you would want to be in if you were a a man etc.) and the finish is acceptably red fruit (the usual strawberry) and mildly acerbic. This is a fine Fleurie - if you can get a price around the 20 dollar US mark.

Villa Ponciago’s 2010 Fleurie La Reserve is scented with fresh blackberry and ripe tomato along with a whiff of chamomile. Firm in feel, but brightly juicy and expansive on the palate it finishes with impressive tenacity and vivacity, featuring the tart and invigoratingly biting sense of berry seeds. I would expect this to be worth following for 4–6 years, though generosity and charm are not likely part of its metier.

Vivid red. High-pitched red berry and floral scents are complicated by notes of fresh rose and lavender, with a touch of licorice coming up with air. Taut and focused, offering tangy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that pick up sweetness with air. Silky tannins add grip to the lively, linear finish.
