Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie Joie Du Palais 2016
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Fleurie|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Fleurie Joie de Palais was lucky to escape the hail that stopped 50 meters from Lafarge's parcel. It has a more earthy, stony bouquet with fine tension, the palate quite saline in the mouth and maybe not quite as detailed on the finish as the Chiroubles. It is an enjoyable Fleurie, although I discerned much more complexity within their Clos Vernay this year.
