Louis Jadot Poncereau 2011, Fleurie

A Beaujolais from Louis Jadot

Fleurie is, in keeping with its name, the most floral of the Beaujolais Crus.

This oaked Fleurie from Louis Jadot, however, is a little different from the norm - bigger, more substantial and less flowery.

Deep ruby-cherry red, aromas of red fruits, meatiness, undergrowth, spice with some floral notes.

Focused, juicy red and black cherry fruit, violets, damsons and roasted oaky spices. Atypically substantial for a Beaujolais - in a good way.

Savoury and long with some sweet vanilla and pepperiness on the finish; grippy, slightly stalky, tannins the only minor quibble.

Match with salamis, meaty stews, duck or roast lamb.

£14.99 from Tesco and independents; provided for review.
