Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2021

Medium Ruby color with aromas of red fruit and earthy floral notes, matured in used barrels. On the palate flavors of red plum, cherry, banana and earthy herbs. Vivid acidity, fine dusty tannins, medium+ finish ending with fruit, floral and earthy mineral. Very good, a few more years of bottle age will benefit! — 15 days ago

Offerus Saint-Joseph Syrah 2020

Blackberry, campfire, black olive, black fig skin, roasted meat, graphite and iron. A beast of flavors compelling themselves over a medium body wine. Has lots to say. Served with duck breast, fig compote and seared brussel sprouts. — a month ago

Cuvée 3.14 Morgon Gamay 2009

Popped and poured; no formal notes. This is my first time trying the 3.14 by Foillard and I was fortunate to enjoy not only one but two separate vintages poured alongside one another. For those who may not be familiar, 3.14 or “Pi” is a rare bottling of Foillard’s oldest vines from Côte du Puy; many of the vines are over 100 years old. On this occasion, both bottles were remarkably similar. The 2009 showed a bit more finesse while the 2010 showed a touch more structure. Both had remarkable depth, concentration and balance. One of those a-ha wines that show how great Beaujolais can be. Fabulously structured, both of these wines have very long lives ahead of them as they are still developing adolescents. That being said, they are enjoyable now and should continue to wow through 2040 and live well beyond. — a month ago

Slightly reticent on the nose. Not the greatest bottle of this, but not bad… just a little under. — 16 days ago

La Dominode Savigny-lès-Beaune 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2018

Lyle Fass

So young and primary but shows the substance of 18. Nose is so mineral and deep with dark red cherry and mid season cherry and wonderful, expressive minerality. A deep earthy scent as well. Really wonderful depth on this. Palate is juicy and explosive with endless depth and super primary red and black cherry fruit. Super concentrated, structured with a huge, mineral and acid backbone: An epic Dominode. Wait a decade. At least.

Wow on day 2 this is so good. Smoothed out and full of fruit and silky yet substantial tannins. 9.4 to 9.5 overnight. I continue to strongly believe in the 18’s. They are modern day 93’s but better and more overall success across vignerons and appellations.
