2022 Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette Cuvée Tardive

$26.99
2022 Coudert Fleurie Clos de la Roilette Cuvée Tardive

John Gilman 95+ The 2022 Fleurie “Cuvée Tardive” from Alain Coudert is equally deep and sappy as the Clos de la Roilette regular bottling, but not quite as expressive aromatically right out of the blocks. The bouquet offers up scents of black plums, black cherries, a hint of pomegranate, bitter chocolate, dark soil tones, fresh thyme, woodsmoke, pigeon, beautifully discreet spice tones and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with great focus and grip, lovely mineral drive on the backend, ripe, buried tannins and a long, nascently complex, seamlessly balanced and still fairly tight-knit finish. This will be very long-lived and it will be a crime to open a bottle until the wine is at least seven or eight years of age. Its true apogee is probably fifteen years down the road! (Drink between 2030 - 2075)

Wine Advocate ( Kenn Wells) 93+ The 2022 Fleurie Cuvée Tardive, produced from vines averaging 80 years old, masterfully pushes the boundaries of concentration. Offering up opulent aromas of grilled blackberries and cherries mingled with licorice, cloves, white pepper, orange rind, vine smoke, struck flint and forest floor, it's medium to full-bodied and appropriately structured with abundant powdery tannins playing a critical role in bolstering the fleshy structure for a long life. The lengthy finish sees the wine's textural and mineral elements meld, guiding it to a gentle, leisurely resolve.
