Domaine Marc Delienne - Avalanche de Printemps Fleurie 2019
Region: Fleurie / Beaujolais
A fruity and succulent Beaujolais with loads of dark cherry and blue fruits. Super drinkable with a stoney core of acid keeping things fresh. Really good.
From the south-east part of Fleurie. Sandy soils derived from granite, covered by a dense layer of pebbles in some spots. Vine ages range from 40 to well over 80 years of age.
All manual. Semi-carbonic macerated in concrete for 12 days with some soft pumping over. Matured for 18 months in huge 30hl old foudres. Minimal sulphur at bottling.
