Domaine Pardon, Cuvée Hugo Fleurie, Beaujolais, France
Tasting Note: A crus Beaujolais from Fleurie that shows the floral side of the gamay grape.
Deep-intensity purple in color this wine has an aromatic nose of red cherry, black plum, kirsch, strawberry, blossom and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-plus bodied Beaujolais expresses the mix of red and black fruit suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity.
The wine also displays mid-palate complexity and flavor concentration.
