2014 Domaine Jean Foillard Fleurie
A vivid red showing linear acidity and tannins. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Bright and pretty. Hints of cream. Drink now. Made from organic grapes.
Bright violet. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, candied flowers and minerals show a touch of licorice in the background. Juicy and pure, offering very good clarity and lift to the red fruit and lavender pastille flavors. Shows very good focus on the mineral-dominated finish, which is framed by gentle, fine-grained tannins. (JR)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2014 Fleurie, matured in old foudres between two and fifteen years old, has a very intense bouquet with shimmering red plum and cranberry aromas, becoming floral with a gorgeous candied note developing underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, pure cranberry and raspberry fruit pierced by a saline seam that lends it tension towards the poised finish. What a wonderful Fleurie from Jean Foillard!
