2011 Stephane Av­i­ron Vieilles Vignes Fleurie, Beau­jo­lais, France

Richmond Hill Post - - Red, White And Brewed -

Fleurie is one of the 10 named crus (high-qual­ity vine­yards) in the gran­ite hills in the north of the Beau­jo­lais re­gion. This is not your usual gul­pa­ble Beau­jo­lais since it has spent a year in oak to give it more vol­ume and mouth feel. Deep pur­ple in colour, the nose sug­gests crushed cher­ries ac­cented with oak notes. Fruity and full on the palate, the cherry flavour is car­ried on lively acid­ity to a fresh fin­ish. Food match: grilled tuna; veal chop.
