2016 Lucien Lardy "Les Moriers" Fleurie

SKU #1408158

David Schildknecht writes: "Lardy – whose nearly 50 acres encompass five appellations (though overwhelmingly in Fleurie and Moulin-a-Vent) – generally employs a relatively common modification of carbonic maceration, whereby a grid is used to submerge the cap for subsequent extraction."

Just to start this wine over delivers for the price. Lucien Lardy's Fleurie shows exactly what the Les Moriers terroir has long been known to produce, special wines with fruit, savoriness, simplicity yet potential to age. This wine is not just appetizing to the taste but the smell confirms its status as one of the appellation’s top sites. And its my favorite. From its lovely aroma, reminiscent of flower petals and ripe sour cherries, to the surprisingly rich, palate-coating flavor, this Fleurie beautifully combines high-toned finesse with a potent depth to age. Hard to believe a wine at this price can be delicate and intense at the same time but this is the trademark of Les Moriers at its best. This is not only a summer sipper but a wine I feel can be enjoyed all year round. A beauty in a bottle and a great investment for your cellar, hold for 10+ years.

Additional Information:



- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
