Château de Pierreux

La Réserve du Château Brouilly Gamay 2018

Rather dark color. Open nose, elegant melting black cherry bigarot, morello cherries, with floral and herbaceous notes. The mouth is fine with many nuances and finesse. An elegant Brouilly done for aging. it should be delicious in 2.3 years.

Robe plutot sombre. Nez ouvert, elegant melants cerise noirs bigarot, griottes, avec des notes florales et herbacées. La bouche est fines aux nombreuses nuances tout en finesse. Un Brouilly plein d’elegance taillé pour la garde. A goûter dans 2,3 ans.

Cuvée du Chaos Fleurie Gamay 2016

From mag. I didn’t know Gamay could taste like this. Unfined and unfiltered this wine had an intense nose and persistent finish. All berry and cherry the producer let the grapes do all the talking. Funky and fresh.

Let chaos reign.

Domaine de Javerniere Morgon Gamay Noir 2016

This is the Côte du Py cru parcel, not listed in the description. Another outstanding vintage, perhaps even outdoing the 2015. About everything you would expect from a top cru-level Morgon, but at a killer price point. — 4 days ago

Domaine de Fa

Roche Guillon Fleurie Gamay 2017

A really nice Beaujolais from Fleurie, Ruby with aromas of perfumed red/black fruits, exotic spices with slight smoky notes. On the palate flavors of tart fresh raspberry and cherry, licorice and anise and mineral notes. Chalky tannins, vivid acidity, long finish ending with smoky mineral fruit. Nice! — 7 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

Telltale (but under control) barnyard funk livens the tangy red fruit and crushed granite on the nose. Cleaner in the mouth, with great intensity but very lively acid balance. Lip-smackingly good. — 4 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2013

Garnet robe. Slow to reveal its perfume, almost needs a decant. But berry liqueur and violets emerge, some baking spice, palate has supple texture, super fine and gentle tannins, nice acid. Truly a wine of pleasure. ‘18 is the most satisfying vintage in Beaujolais to my palate since ‘14. This wine, like the best from the vintage, combines perfect ripeness with classic elegance and lift. — 5 days ago

Domaine Mee Godard

Morgon Corcelette Gamay 2018

Intriguing nose with floral, mineral and savory fruit; poached fresh berries. Also showing up is a subtle meaty Syrah-like note. The first sip reveals tremendous inner mouth florals; and a prism of bright red, purple and blue fruit appear on the palate. Caressing texture and sensuous tannins. Just ripe with a measured perception of sweetness. On the whole so lifted and elegant. The intentionality is clear; Godard is coaxing expressions of gamay that are beautiful and different than any I’ve tried before, and at a very reasonable price... for now. Very much worth seeking out. — 8 days ago

Les Impenitents Javernières Morgon Gamay 2018

The colour is deep for a Bojo. Nice Aromas of red fruits, some cherries in particular, floral hints. Nice acidity, on the medium plus bodied palate that shows some power with very generous fruit and a lengthy delicious finish. Not a typical light Gamay, much better. 89-90

Couleur foncée pour un Bojo. Nez de fruits rouges, griottes entre autres, floral et très agréable. Belle tension et une certaine puissance en bouche, fruit mur et généreux avec une finale savoureuse. Ne fait pas Gamay du tout, très bien. 89-90
