Goedhuis, August 2018
Clos de la Roilette is a leading estate in Beaujolais and we love their precise, classical Fleurie, grown on granite soils. Gamay’s pure kirsch cherries and violet notes combine with mineral freshness. Light, crunchy tannins and a nimble body make for a delightfully easy-going wine packed with juicy flavour. This 2018 boasts elegant, supple tannins and a pleasingly fresh acidity.
Josh Raynolds, September 2019,
The Coudert family makes cellar-worthy Fleurie that’s also delicious on the young side. The 2018 shows the expressive dark fruit of the vintage, but there’s real finesse on display as well. Enjoy it now with grilled chicken or through fall and winter with Coq au Vin or mushroom-centric dishes.
Clos de la Roilette
Alain Coudert is one of the finest producers in the Beaujolais region. His domaine is located in Fleurie near the border with Moulin-à-Vent. He produces a sustainable and low intervention gamay.
At the very southern tip of Burgundy, to the west of Villefranche-sur-Saone, lie the vineyards of Beaujolais. Light years from the illustrious slopes of the Cote d'Or, this is the home of the Gamay grape which thrives on granite soils. The grapes are vinified whole which results in lovely, fresh fruity red wines for early drinking. Fleurie is one of ten crus in the area producing a higher quality of wine than straightforward Beaujolais or Beaujolais villages. The wines are very appealing, full of perfumed fruit with a fresh, crunchy texture.
