La Cour des Bois Saint-Véran Chardonnay 2015

Marcel Couturier, La Cour des Bois, Saint-Véran AOC, Vintage 2015, ABV 13%.

This is a Chardonnay from the Saint-Véran appellation in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy, France 🇫🇷

Mâconnais is generally known for its richer, fuller-bodied Chardonnay expressions, in part due to its more southerly positioning in Burgundy and its warmer temperatures; this wine is an excellent example. 💕💕💕

This wine was produced using older French oak barrels, softening the edges of the orchard and stone fruit characteristics and imparting complexity. A little exposure to oxygen happens naturally when fermenting or aging wine in oak barrels and this exposure may be responsible for the beautiful golden hue I see in the glass, along with time spent in the bottle. 🌞

👃 On the nose this wine has a medium intensity of developing aromas. The aromas include primary notes of tart peach, apricot, yellow apple, lemon rind, also chamomile, orange flower, white blossom, flint and wet stone, also secondary notes of toast, cream, brioche, delicate vanilla and baking spices, and tertiary notes of caramel, butterscotch, and honey. 🍐 🍑 🍎 🍋

👄 On the palate this wine is dry. It has medium(+) acidity, a medium(+) body, medium alcohol, medium intensity in flavors consistent with the nose and a medium finish.

I love the weigh, richness, and complexity of this wine, which we bought at @france_44 recently.

We have paired this wine with sautéed shrimp, roasted veggies, and jasmine rice. It’s a lovely pairing, but I suspect this wine could stand up to an even richer meal or white meat.

I just tried this and like you alongside some other Lapierre crus. I really didn’t get on with it and you have me thinking my bottle must have been dud or I missed something here. I actually preferred both the Cuvee Marcel Lapierrea and straight Morgon. Interesting, thanks for your note.

Classic Pouilly. What a time to be in Paris! Sitting on the balcony of my AirBNB enjoying the sounds of the Marais. Today restaurant, cafés and museum restrictions begin to ease. That alone is making this wine taste good. I’ll add tasting notes tomorrow, when my palate isn’t clouded by the shear weight of the moment. — 11 days ago

Morgon Gamay 2018

Only one bottle left... That strong nose with violet, cherry, hay, iron... Who couldn't love that? There is a huge acid backbone with a good width, a soft mouthfeel, a big bright ripe cherry note, a huge power house of a mid palate with tickling tannins that tend to dry up a bit a huge finish with cherry and even cherry spirit notes. That's probably my favorite kind of wine here — 15 days ago

A cheaper Deiss is still a Deiss - extremely well made, succulent, tropical fruits with fairly high acids. — a month ago

Cuvée Marcel Lapierre Morgon Gamay

More structured than the basic Morgon and I think will develop into the better wine of given a few years. — a month ago
