"The 2014 Château de Fleurie has begun to open beautifully since I last saw a bottle one year ago, as the youthful structure has really begun to relax and the wine is drinking with great style and generosity today. The bouquet is deep, complex and classic, wafting from the glass in a blend of sappy black cherries, sweet dark berries, bitter chocolate, fresh thyme, dark soil tones, a touch of gamebird and a touch of violets in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with fine focus and grip, still a touch of backend tannin and a long, complex and vibrant finish. This is really a terrific bottle of Fleurie. 2016-2030+."

"Deep ruby. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red and blue fruits and pungent flowers, and a spicy element slowly emerges. Juicy and penetrating, offering fresh back raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Fine-grained tannins shape a very long, sweet finish that strongly echoes the floral and berry notes."
