Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2019

This was delicious. Just the kind of wine I like. On a night full of big, heavy reds, this was solace on the table. A wine of energy! Aromas of cherry pastille, cardamom, and fresh flowers. The palate was a touch reduced, but it comes of as being flinty, which plays to the mineral-accented finish. Light to medium body, with juicy plums and black cherry flavours, seamless tannins, and good acidity. Not the most layered wine of the night, but gosh it’s tasty. I needed this tonight. — 24 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2019

The least Beaujolais-like of the lineup, but in a good way. I’d call it 1er cru cote de Beaune, maybe Savigny. Extremely balanced, it’s an equilibrium between intense red fruit and pretty florals, violets and lilies. The palate is so delicate, pretty tannins and delicate fruit. Zero funk — a month ago

Domaine Heitz-Lochardet

Connivence Armand Heitz + Alex Foillard Gamay Pinot Noir 2017

Light garnet, plummy undercurrent with raspberry and hints of strawberry, mild tannins in the backs of the cheeks. Very smooth with light, nuanced red fruit flavours and a somewhat briny or clay-ey finish. — a day ago

Rush Canadian Golden Ale

Yes, Rush the Canadian rock legends made a beer. 🇨🇦

This is the write up by the guitarist Alex Liefson:

"Rush Canadian golden ale is golden in colour with a dense ivory head. It has an earthy aroma with hints of orange peel, pine, rye spice and citric hop flavour that add to the subtle complexity of the beer."

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2019

2019 Cote du Py By far the best Gamay Noir I have tasted in several years. Such a precise expression of Morgon. This aroma shows the perfect combination of deep and inviting cherry plum fruitiness along with the slightest brush pepperiness and subtle meaty/earthy hints. There is no funky Brett in this wine that I can find. Not squeaky clean commercial either. There is no mistaking the pedigree of this vineyard site as well as the deft hand of this legendary producer. The texture is pure pleasure, almost nil tannins (The way I like it), and major length. Woody, brushy (rotundones) are combined with perfectly ripe tree fruit and alluring minerality . For anyone confused about the distinction between Burgundy and Beaujolais this should stand as a model example. Bravo bravo bravo!!! — 17 days ago

Eponym' Morgon Gamay 2019

Incredibly enjoyable to drink. Just as balanced and fresh as the others in the lineup, this one is dominated by black cherry cola. There is a very appealing profile of sugary soda on the nose combined with smooth dark fruit. It’s what you want out of a great burgundy, but in Morgon clothing. Great showing! — a month ago
