Fleurie Hospices de Belleville (0.75 L)
The 2015 Fleurie Hospices de Belleville comes from six hectares of vine belonging to the hospices, the élevage finished off chez Drouhin in Beaune. It has a lovely ripe black plum and boysenberry bouquet that is clean and very pure. You cannot help but like this. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit, a touch of bell pepper and perhaps just needing a little more flesh on the finish. Still, this is a pleasurable Fleurie that will probably repay another 12-18 months in bottle.
