Critical Acclaim

WE91 Wine Enthusiast 11/1/2016

"Densely planted vines on a 4.5-acre parcel create this impressive, richly perfumed wine. It has structure and some solid tannins along with juicy black fruits. The wine is still young, and although drinkable now will be so much better starting from 2017." (91 pts.)

SP90 Wine Spectator Aug 31, 2017

"Fresh and aromatic, with a bouquet of rose lining the raspberry and red plum core of this light-bodied red. Anise, tea and mineral accents give complexity to the finish, edged with supple tannins. Drink now through 2021. 378 cases made." (90 pts.)

VN90 Vinous Aug 2016

"Vivid red. Primary red fruit and floral scents, along with suggestions of white pepper and smoky minerals. Shows very good focus and vivacity on the palate, offering bitter cherry and red currant flavors that deepen and become sweeter with air. Closes sappy and long, with smooth tannins sneaking in late to add shape and grip. This wine is quite a bit more civilized than the other two that I tried from this producer; the Brouilly Pisse-Ville might appeal to fans of old-school, rustic Beaujolais but it was just too leathery for me." (90 pts.)

RP89 Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Aug 2016

"The 2015 Fleurie Grand-Pré has a vivid bouquet with red cherry and redcurrant aromas that burst from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, supple in the mouth with a caressing strawberry and red cherry finish that lingers. A bit of a temptress this Fleurie!" (89 pts.)

France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.
