Marc Delienne Fleurie “Maurice” 2018

Beautiful Gamay named in honour of the previous owner of Marc Delienne's Fleurie vineyards. The "Maurice" is a new cuveé in the Domaine Marc Delienne line up.This cuvées's vines are situated in the south-east of Fleurie, largely on sandy soils. After being harvested by hand, the grapes are sorted before maceration in concrete vats.For 10 days, no yeasts are added and the grapes are stirred daily. What follows is a 7-month maturation in concrete vats.

It's fermented semi-carbonically, allowing plenty of primary fruit to shine through as well as plenty of structure to be extracted. It's the moodier, broodier expression from this vintage with more smoke and mineral character. It's classic Beaujolais with a little wildness in its eye.

Revealing lovely aromas of cherries, raspberries, candied peel and spices, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with melting tannins, ripe acids and a bright core of fruit.
