~ Wine of the Week - Marrans Fleurie ~

Today's wine of the week comes from Domaine des Marrans in Beaujolais. Their Fleurie is one of 10 cru Beaujolias and is renowned for its vivacious wines that have a distinctive floral perfume.

Julia Harding, writing for JancisRobinson.com, rates the 2014 vintage "Good Value," saying: 
"Bright lightish crimson. There’s a definite mineral quality here, as if you can taste the granite. There’s tangy dark-red fruit and very fine tannins. This is more savoury and dry than many a Fleurie, rather a serious side to an often flirtatious wine."
