Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Fleurie is the pick of recent releases. It has a pleasant, unassuming bouquet with cranberry, dark cherry and bergamot notes that are well-defined and focused. The palate is medium-bodied with fine balance: chewy dark cherries and cranberry fruit, impressive focus with commendable tension on the linear finish. Drink now-2019.
