2015 Manoir du Carra Beaujolais Cru Fleurie - 91 PTS - VINOUS

2015 Manoir du Carra Beaujolais Cru Fleurie - 91 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"Bright ruby. Ripe and energetic on the nose, showing excellent clarity and lift to the ripe raspberry, cherry and floral pastille scents. Palate-staining red and blue fruit and lavender flavors are sharpened by suggestions of smoky minerals and white pepper. Smoothly plays richness off vivacity and finishes long and vibrant, leaving a sweet black raspberry note behind. - Josh Raynolds"

iwinereview"This is a lovely fruit forward wine of red plum with earthy and forest floor aromas.. On the palate, it offers lush red plum fruit flavors, good acidity, firm tannins and very good length. "

wa89"The 2014 Fleurie undergoes 11-day skin maceration, 50% of the grapes de-stemmed and 80% aged on foudre. It has quite a "punchy" nose with macerated small red cherries and blueberry, mixed with light ash scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe tannin and well-judged acidity. I like the harmony here, stylistically equidistant between traditional and modern Beaujolais, pulled off with some style. Neal Martin "
