Fleurie, Domaine André Colonge et Fils 2015
A floral, pretty nose is followed by a lush, ample palate with very juicy, strawberry fruit lifted by pleasant peppery notes. Three generations of the Colonge family are involved in this family estate.

Posh Bojo is starting to gain traction in our cellars. Thankfully the days of banana and bubblegum-scented wines are long gone and the wines now show classical lines and more structure than days of yore. Colonge’s red cherry-kissed Fleurie flatters on the nose and then grows in intensity on the palate. Again, this is a turkey wine, but it will also tempt you at elevenses and mid-afternoons, too, such is its seamless allure. Its obvious lack of tannin and grip makes it a truly hedonistic pleasure.
