Gamay 38, Maison Dominique Piron Fleurie 2016

This is a lovely expression of Fleurie, from Dominique Piron. I visited him in 2016, and was really impressed by the consistency and nice terroir expression of the wines. He’s based in Morgon, but also makes wines from other crus. I think this wine is a different bottling to his normal Fleurie (it has a different label) and is a Laithwaites exclusivity. But it’s really good.

Maison Dominique Piron Fleurie 2016 Beaujolais, France
13% alcohol. This has a lovely sweet, warmly spiced nose of raspberries, cherries and cured meat. In the mouth, it’s supple and structured, with sweet raspberries, a hint of pepper and some warm meaty undertones. This is rich but fresh at the same time with a nice savoury spiciness and a hint of seriousness to go with the supple drinkability. A complete expression of Beaujolais, combining prettiness and substance. 92/100 (£14.49 Laithwaites)
