Let it open for a bit. Initially had an off smell but once that went away, nice light soft mineral wine w good texture and very approachable.

Checking in on 2016. Delicious now, would decant. Tons of promise for the future. A breath of fresh air when compared to the 2015 vintage in Beaujolais as a whole.

I don't normally enjoy carbonic, but Dutraive makes me question my taste.

Love to know if this is 100% carbonic? Thought it was a 2015, light, not a lot of fleurie character...

Dutraive is a master of Gamay and one of my favorite producers, period. His wines show the extent to what the grape can do. His is elegant, complex, pure, terroir driven. This 2016 Fleurie has green herbal aromas with iodine, stringent red rose buds, and tart wild berries. When I describe pure mineral driven wines, this is quintessentially what I envision. You can taste the rocky earth and Dutraive weaves that core into well behaved fruit and floral flavors with another dose of iodine on the finish. It’s a spectacularly fresh wine at a fraction of the cost to what you’d pay in Burgundy. Bravo.
