Domaine Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette Cuvee Tardive 2018
This sensational Fleurie is not a late picked cuvee as you may expect but rather a wine made from the oldest vines on the estate and the tardive relates to the age rather than the picking. The vines are currently around 90 years of age and in each successive vintage they offer greater and greater complexity to the resulting wine. As the parcel borders onto the Moulin a Vent appellation, the manganese and clay soils give a full on expression of the Gamay grape and make this wine worthy of inclusion in every cellar. If you're a Burgundy lover but find the prices of the top wines too much these days, take a few bottles of this and cellar them for a few years, you'll barely tell the difference apart from the cash left in your pocket! As the wine is not fined or filtered please expect a small natural sediment in the bottle.
