Cuvee Christie Fleurie Gamay 2021

Delectable Wine
9.1

This elegant 2021 Cuvée Christie comes from the Fleurie Cru in Beaujolais. Finely balanced and brimming with vibrant red fruit, floral and spice character, plus a taut core of minerality, it’s irresistible now and has the depth to age. Moreover, it is consistently among the Cru’s best values. $23.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, November 2022) — 17 days ago

Vendange Tardive Fleurie Gamay 2018

The Tardive really is an uptick in depth though this is such kick ass Beaujolais I’ve always felt it deserves its own category (Kick A- Beaujo). Black cherries, but seriously black, oodles of fruit but it’s the minerality & acid that sets it apart, along w the depth. Medium bodied, taut( not tight somehow). Ribena with cracked black pepper nose. Blind tasting w friends but guessed to be every region but Beaujo. If I remember the history right, this is more of a Moulin Vent property, so makes some sense it has such gravitas- which is what it is, a joyous wine with gravitas. Dressner importer. Oh, and it’s ok to try now, it’s not infanticide. 25$ on sale- that’s just stupid. — 3 years ago

N: Caught between Burg and CDP.
Pepper, garrigue, souis bois, black and red, animalistic in the best way. it smells tarry, spice, dark fruits. ( so far, it’s giving the last Clos de Roilette a run for it’s money)
P: light textured and deep, ( ha) tarry, plums, liquorice, chalky blackness.
Amazing Fleurie!

Cuvée Tardive Fleurie Gamay 2019

Good, solid Bojo. Lots of granite-laced plummy fruit. A little cherry and spice too. Good flavor intensity. Acids a bit low. But nice crunch from the minerality. A noticeable amount of tannin too. — 7 months ago

Beaujolais Gamay

Thanksgiving accompaniment & interesting taste after trying the Tardive several weeks ago. Really was two different wines, & have to say I think this needed larger stemware to really showcase. That said, this is coiled & taut, a big Beaujolais with creosote & eucalyptus notes that I did not find in the Tardive. Black fruits & a near black red color. Plenty of stuffing for several years I imagine. The more I drink Roilette the more I feel it’s almost not fair to compare it to other Beaujolais. It tastes like it’s own style and a separate, distinct class of wine. A second bottle awaits, along w bigger stemware & perhaps a decant. — 3 years ago

Agreed on your distinction, they are different.
