Les Moriers is the favored site in the grand cru appellation Fleurie. Chignard is considered its master vintner. Pretty to the nose, luscious on the palate, this unfiltered blend is one of the masterpieces in the portfolio.
“Brilliant violet color. A suave, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits and candied flowers and a spicy nuance builds in the glass. Bright, seamless and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated yet lively raspberry and boysenberry flavors that firm up slowly with aeration. Ripe but graceful in style, finishing gently tannic and impressively long, leaving a sexy lavender pastille note behind.” –93 Points, Vinous
“There are some beautifully defined, ripe red and dark berries on offer here, as well as a fine, juicy array of fresh, lively tannins that carry plenty of nicely articulated flavor. Drink or hold.” –92 Points, James Suckling
