Fleurie Domaine De Quatre Vents 2005 wine review by (PB)
Remember the progression of Beaujolais wines? They go (increasing in price and quality) from Beaujolais to Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais Cru and Beaujolais Nouveau which is in a class by itself.
This is one of the Beaujolais Cru named "Fleurie." This wine was $13, has a nice clear garnet hue with light Gamay aromas with gentle raspberry and strawberry kool-aid bouquet.
In the mouth this wine was really kind of unremarkable which is not the case for most Cru wines. It was okay but really not memorable. Try a differnt year and raise a glass.
