Domaine des Terres Dorées (Jean-Paul Brun)

Terres Dorees Beaujolais Gamay 2017

Haven’t tasted in a while, have always been biased towards these crunchy, layered & elegant cru Beaujolais. ‘17 Brouilly version is nice & taut, that snappy freshness on entry. Black cherries & wild raspberries. With air really deepens & finds another level, much broader & long finish, strong mid palate, & solidly medium weight. Love it or leave it. Louis Dressner importer. Oh, and for about 20$. — 5 days ago

Love this cuvee. Nose of red cherries, some cherry flower, spice, roses, gorgeous. Palate is ripe, deep, concentrated and deep with great mineral drive and a lovely sweet earthy fruit sweetness. Great wine. That old vine intensity shines through. — 10 days ago

Nice! I thought you maybe became a wine maker when I saw the decanter.

Raisins Gaulois Gamay

A nice light Gamay, perfect for Thanksgiving. Pale garnet colour, fruity and floral with aromas of raspberry, violet, and a hint of potting soil. The palate has great acidity with some red currant and sour cherry flavours. Paired with turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes. — 3 days ago

Le Printemps Fleurie Gamay 2017

Opened overnight. Still full of energy, red fruited and earthy, but finishes with that bean-like character I associate with "natural-wines-that-went-over-the-edge-
after-too-much-air". Still a nice drink if you can get past that bean element. Would be nice to see it a day prior.

The Coudert family makes cellar-worthy Fleurie that’s also delicious on the young side. The 2018 shows the expressive dark fruit of the vintage, but there’s real finesse on display as well. Enjoy it now with grilled chicken or through fall and winter with Coq au Vin or mushroom-centric dishes. $25.00 (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, September 2019) — 17 days ago

P'tit Max Morgon Gamay 2015

Nose has deep, ripe black cherry, mashed red cherry, old roses, baking spice (light) and dry earth. The cherry nose is quite overpowering, very intense.

Palate has sweet black cherry, under-ripe red cherry with mild tannins, sweet spice on the trailing end of a very long finish. Fruit is rich and silky, but still somewhat tight after a 6+ hour decant. This bottle still needs years, revisit post 2022+.

I am always delighted when drinking bottles from any of the Gang of Four, but their top-tier bottles are always the most special and unique. I think at a 10-year birthday, this bottle will easily rival some of the best Pinot Noirs to the north in Burgundy. The best in Beaujolais generally need many years to come together, Morgon is no exception, needing the most cellaring for satisfaction, in my experience. Take note this wine comes from a plot of 90+ average year old Gamay, in only a 2 ha plot (just under 5 acres in USA speak), not many bottles will come from that effort. (It wasn't even made in 2016 due to low yield after the frost.) Seek, have patience and be rewarded.
