Foillard's wines are always excellent, especially in the 2009 vintage. This Fleurie builds with great gamay fruit, wet stone underneath, and hint of the beautiful floral notes this terroir is known for. Intense, focused and super balanced and without weight!

The 2009 Fleurie has a rounded, sensual bouquet of raspberry coulis and blueberry scents interlaced with rose petals (here, I concur with my colleague David Schildknecht about this Fleurie erring toward darker fruit.) The palate is medium-bodied with an effervescent orange zest opening, superb acidity and an energetic, tensile finish that is concentrated and precise. This is a Fleurie from the very top drawer. Drink now-2020.
