Clos de la Roilette Cuvee Tardive Fleurie 2022 750ml
Roilette was the name of the prior owner's prized race horse.
The name "tardive" is misleading and often causes confusion. The grapes were not late-harvested.
The cuvée consists of the estate's oldest vines and the wine always benefits from time, usually a few years, before showing its true potential.
The Clos de la Roilette, a lieu-dit in the village of Fleurie, covers nine hectares of one of the best slopes in the Beaujolais Crus.
The clos has an eastern Exposure, borders the Moulin-à-Vent Appellation, and produces wines that are beautiful when young and have the capacity to age 5-10 years, depending on the vintage.
