Olivier Ravier Fleurie Cru Beaujolais 2019
A superb Beaujolais produced from the Fleurie Cru, a more serious style worthy of cellaring.
This quintessential Fleurie is an intense purple in the glass, with aromas of cherries, strawberries, and strong floral notes. The palate is rich, with smooth tannins, lush strawberry fruit, and notes of cocoa which add complexity
This excellent Cru Beaujolais is produced by Olivier Ravier, one of the most iconic and respected winemakers in Beaujolais and a former President of the Beaujolais growers association. Living in the heart of the Fleurie appellation, he produces wines which show great typicity from each terroir. The Fleurie Cru is one of 10 villages which produce higher quality wines with a more serious style worthy of cellaring. This wine is enjoyable now but can be cellared around 5 years.
