Fleurie Comtesse de Vazeilles Chateau De Bachelards 2018
Ready, but will improve

2018 was a spectacular vintage : This 2018 produces a great shine. Elegant aromas of peony and a hit of violet with great length. The wine is floral, complex, dense, long and relatively firm with a splendid mid-palate of pure and fresh blackberry. The attack is fresh and silky with astonishing persistence and lots of density.

James Suckling stated: 'Welcome to the delightful deep end of contemporary Beaujolais! Stunning nose of summer flowers, very fine red and black fruit with the merest hint of spice. This is simultaneously so deep and delicate, the serious concentration married to wonderful coolness. Really fine tannins make the long finish feel like old-fashioned velvet. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold'

Rating: 96/100 James Suckling
