2018 Georges Descombes Fleurie 'Vieilles Vignes' Gamay
Warm and dry 2018 vintage produced Beaujolais wines that are ripe and lush, but lower in alcohol, with brighter, fresh aromas. This superb wine is from the famed Grille-Midi section of Fleurie - Yvon Metras has his vines here too. This has a super granite/floral nose that is very attractive, particularly the top notes of strawberries and violets. This is a super bottle; sweet, fresh, crunchy - perfect balance and super length.
