Chateau de Poncie Fleurie Le Pre Roi 2016
From Burgundy’s southerly sloped granite Fleurie vineyards, “the queen of the Crus,” this land glistens in a coruscating pink granite. The wine has beautiful garnet color, this opens and carries on with peony floral notes, lush red berries, and orange rinds. Some of the fruit going into this is crushed under foot to prevent green tannin notes. Aged for seven months in 30% 2-5 year old barrels, this is well integrated and stylish throughout -from start to finish.
Chicken even cold or in a salad. Cured meats or sausages, tuna, roasted pork or turkey. Burgers and brats, Nachos.
