  • 2011 Domaine Chignard Fleurie Les Moriers - France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Fleurie (11/27/2012)
    Vivid purple in colour and bursting with purple fruits and purple flowers. The sweet fruits have a tarry edge and plenty of flora. It is luscious, sweet and sappy with a stemsy finish sprinkled with freshly cracked pepper. There’s enough muscle under the flesh to suggest it should be a good mid-term ager as well. Delicious stuff!

What's your preference between these wines and the ones the father used to make, Jeremy?

No experience with the latter Claude. What's your take?

I think the son is good (but more modern); however, I've not had one from him yet that could thrill me the way the father's wines could -- père was not only my favorite Fleurie producer but one of my handful of favorite Bojo producers, period.

Off the top of my head, must have been somewhere around 2005-2006.

07 was the first vintage I tasted of this wine. I'll keep my eye out for older ones on wine lists next year when in France.

I knew nothing of the transition from father to son, but having had this since only 2004, I've always enjoyed this wine and placed it high among my favorite cru Beaujolais.
