Domaine de la Madone Fleurie Cuvée Prestige 2007

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Vintage: 2007
Type: Beaujolais
Country: France – Burgundy – Beaujolais – Fleurie

This wine is slightly different than your typical Fleurie since it has spent some time ageing in French oak.  because of this, it still has the flavours that you would expect with the gamay grape: berries and fresh fruit.  The oak adds a loving level of complexity and depth. This is a sophisticated Beaujolais . Excellent effort!

Domaine de la Madone Fleurie Cuvée Tradition 2009

Vintage: 2009
Type: Beaujolais
Country: France – Beaujolais – Fleurie

This is a lovely Beaujolais with an excellent flavour full of fruit. Nice acidity and easy to drink. Tonnes of fruit on the palette – almost bursting with flavour.  Nice hints of minerality as well.

A more serious Fleurie, though it is still quick youthful and fruity with a hint of frivolity. Excellent bottle overall full of fruits and light tannins.

Despres – La Madone

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

Vintage: 2006
Type: Fleurie
Country: France – Beaujolais

DESCRIPTION
The colour of this wine really impressed me. It was deep purple. The aroma was equally impressive: intense fruits with a hint of flowers. The producer recommended drinking the wine now, as is, but also keeping it for 5+ years. I imagine this wine would complement a gorgeous lamb roast or hearty beef stew.

Despres – Domain du Niagara

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

Vintage: 2007
Type: Fleurie
Country: France – Beaujolais

DESCRIPTION
This is a very different Fleurie, if you are used to drinking Georges Duoeuf’s Fleuries. This wine is robust and full-bodied. The producer recommends that the bottle be kept a year or two in order to fully reveal the wine’s intense flavours of blackcurrants and wild blackberries.

Type: French red (not sure of the grape)
Country: France – Beaujolais

One of my favourites. A great colour, excellent bouquet and an amazing flavour. It isn’t overpowering so it will go well with most food. If you can get a hold of a bottle, try it!
