    Default [TN] '09 Roilette Fleurie

    Tonight's dinner consisted of leftover rabbit in mustard sauce with
    mashed sweet potato. To accompany it, I opened:

    2009 Clos de la Roilette (Alain Coudert) Fleurie
    nose: juicy cranberry with a hint of grapefruit, minerals
    palate: fair acidity, velvety smooth, rich, dark fruit

    As usual, this wine shades to the darker side of Gamay fruit, but had
    lovely depth and aromatic qualities. Less acidic than is the norm, but
    still well focused and very drinkable. No hurry on this wine, either.
    I'm glad that I have more.

    Thanks for the note. I have some of this as well. I was very disappointed
    in the last 3 bottles of the 08, which I drank last November. The 07s had
    more body.

    I have to say that I have really enjoyed this wine and bought 4
    bottles. Very nice with a variety of pasta dishes.

    thanks, I've bought this but not tried yet (but really liked Cuvee
    Tardive)
