Domaine Coudert Fleurie Clos De La Roilette has a deep ruby colour with a hint of purple, thanks to the use of the traditional semi-carbonic maceration method of winemaking. A restrained nose of plums, mulberries and dark cherry fruit, with meaty elements, smoke, olives, pepper, liquorice and menthol in the mix. There’s a fascinating salty, nutty/savoury component married to forest floor and floral violet/iris notes, all tied together by lip-smacking acidity. This is a wine that ages gracefully, taking on the aromatic character of Pinot Noir as it does so.

Fleurie is the best known of the Beaujolais crus and perhaps the most charming. The Clos De La Roilette is named after a 19th century racehorse that was something of a legend in its day, and the Coudert family retained the name when they purchased the estate. Alain Coudert, the owner and wine-maker, is a most genial man and his personality radiates from his wine.

Although in Fleurie, the vineyard sits right next to Moulin-à-Vent and shares its neighbour's soils. As a result, this wine features greater structure and depth of flavour than one would usually expect from its appellation.
