2019 Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie

SKU #1521422 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Fleurie is very pretty, soaring from the glass with scents of raspberries, peonies, warm spices and subtle soil tones. Medium-bodied, bright and lively, with terrific purity of fruit, lively acids and fine, melting tannins, this Bel Air-based blend has turned out beautifully. The 2019s have turned out beautifully at Domaine Lafarge-Vial, bursting with fragrant fruit, finer boned and more ethereal in style than the 2018s at the same stage. Acquired in 2014 by Volnay's Frédéric Lafarge and his wife Chantal, née Vial, this four-hectare domaine is biodynamically farmed. The grapes are partially destemmed and fermented with punch-downs and pump-overs during the maceration, followed by pressing in a vertical press. Maturation is in well-used cooperage from the Domaine Lafarge in Volnay. The result is old-school cru Beaujolais, built to age. Any readers looking for Gamay that will, with time in bottle, converge with great Pinot Noir should look no further. (WK) Inner quote mark (8/2021)

91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Slightly more elegant aromas are comprised by notes of spicy and floral suffused aromas that blend both red and dark berry fruit. The silky but very punchy flavors exude a subtle salinity on the youthfully austere finale that is equally long if not quite as complex. This is very pretty and very Fleurie in character Inner quote mark (4/2021)
