The 2014 Fleurie from Domaine des Terres d’Orées is just a touch tight when first opened, so give it a bit of time in decanter if you are going to drink it early on. Once it blossoms, the wine is stellar, offering up a pure and classic nose of cherries, pomegranate, coffee, herb tones, a nice base of soil and a topnote of violets. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a lovely structural integrity, tangy acids, laser-like focus and excellent length and grip on the nascently complex and discreetly leafy finish. This is not your plush, vin de soif example of Fleurie, but a serious wine that needs a couple of years in the cellar to really start to hit on all cylinders. It will be outstanding once it has fully blossomed. 2018-2035.
Bright violet color. Vibrant cherry and floral pastille scents are complicated by hints of blood orange and incense. Juicy, focused and energetic, offering palate-staining black raspberry and lavender pastille flavors and a suggestion of spicecake. Clings with impressive focus and mineral-driven persistence, with just a whisper of tannins sneaking in late. (JR)
