Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2018

Lyle Fass
9.2

Beautiful nose. Just so lifted and floral. Raspberry, black cherry, blueberry, pastille effect, herbal, an apothecary vibe in a medieval video game. Palate is lush and very 18. Soft and structured with black cherry and late season red cherries. Not showing much finesse yet but has great balance. Dynamite juiciness. Really engaging and fresh but still a little 18 itis. Ripe and juicy tannins with nice floral fruit notes. Let’s see where this goes.

This stayed the same and lost some focus. 18 Foillards mostly miss the mark

Fleurie Gamay 2018

This vertical confirmed my bias that Beaujolais loses energy with age. I’ve done this a few tines and the younger gamays shine with superior crunch, spice and energy. — 11 days ago

@romo I’ve had luck aging Bouland Morgons (for 8-10 years.) I’m pretty sure I have a bunch of 2010-12 Folliard to open at some point, Morgon and Fluerie. If interested, send me a note at macleancd@gmail.com. I might be back in LA in the fall.

The whole package - fresh, vivid, fleshy, intense, layered, long. Hums with energy. Plenty of structure to boot, this will evolve well. Flat out delicious. — a month ago

Cuvée 3.14 Morgon Gamay

17.5 Has it all - forward nose, great fruit, some complexity, long. Could last 5 more years, but that’s not what I drink Morgon for. Perfect with poussin and calcots. — 7 days ago
