Fleurie Chapelle des Bois Jules Desjourneys 2010 (750ML)

"95 Points, David Schildknecht, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: ""I hesitated before offering another long note as purple as the wine it purports to describe, but from bottle, Desjourneys's 2010 Fleurie La Chapelle des Bois Tres Vieilles Vignes has indeed well-exceeded even my exalted Issue 196 expectations, so I feel bound not just to offer an update, but one that reflects my awe. Almond extract, rowan, freesia, and dark berries and stone fruits shadowed by their distilled counterparts combine for a penetratingly high-toned and hauntingly complex aroma. The texture here has turned positively silky and this essence from centenarian vines finishes not just with the "pristine purity of fruit ... complex depth of flavor (and) vibratory intensity" on which I commented before it was bottled, but with a soaring sense of buoyancy and a kaleidoscopic interaction of floral, fruit, and mineral nuances. Although the track record for Duperray's wines is short, I feel confident that one like this will remain awesome at least through 2020."" 06/13"
