"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

After a 2 weeks pause for (very mild) health reasons I thought it would be good to pop a bottle I had kept on the side for such occasion.
Cola, cherry, hay and an irony thing one the nose, very inviting. The palate is superlative. Massive acid backbone, superb juicy cherry fruit all along, great width, soft mouthfeel, a little bit of cherry liqueur on the sides too, ample mid palate with a slight drying effect like a subtle brush and a finish with those same cherry juice and cherry liqueur notes. This is so beautiful...

Coteaux Champenois Bouzy Rouge Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir from the Champagne region. Translucent ruby color, cherry nose with a spice tip. Tense mouth with freshness and an almost saline finish and the return of cherry. Light, thin. Finds all its meaning served at 14-16 degrees. No vintage on the label?

Pinot Noir de la région champenoise. Robe rubis translucide, nez cerise pointe d’épice. Bouche bien tendue avec de la fraîcheur et une finale quasi saline et le retour de la cerise. Léger, fin. Trouve tout son sens servi à 14-16 degrés.

Jamais goûté encore de bouzy et ça me tente beaucoup. J'imagine un pinot noir tendu et précis mais peu exubérant

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2018

My ride or die. Violets. Pastille/candied black currants and blueberries. If you really search for it, granite and ash on the finish. Riper vintage, but acid is sufficient and fruit is vibrant. Texture = silky and divine.

Les Beaumonts Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1995

It's been a week...found this laying around to soothe my pain...Squinting with some Julien Lage...trying to chill out.

Pop and pour. Notes from 1 hr open. This is stunning and far and away my best btl. That being said, it shows its age. On the nose: lovely spicy earthy notes, dried raspberry, and, that earthy, musky perfume is heavenly. On the palate: excellent acidity, good density, leather, wild strawberry, soft thyme and lavender...finely grained tannin on the finish. If this btl is representative, this will probably hold a while, but based on my previous bottles, it is at peak now.

Cuvée de Fous Brouilly Gamay 2017

Going on 5 yrs, thought I’d give this unusual Cru Bojo from Brouilly a try. It’s singularity is first hinted at with a 14.5% abv; it also needs air & time to really come together; finally, it has some serious tannins. Like arid desert dry tannins, or something that one would get in only a Southern French red— like Madiran ( Tannat) or Cot (Malbec). At end of day, needed a good decant or another 3/4 yrs. — 4 days ago

Lapalu is an amazing wine maker.. you should try his Pinot Noir if you can.

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2011

This bottle was a lovely gift from our friend Tim who visited Omaha this past Spring. Our only instructions were to enjoy it together with food; challenge accepted! While I have experienced many wines produced by Foillard, this was my first with his “Cote du Py”. The wine pours a deep ruby color; slightly hazy in the glass. On the nose, at least initially, there are signs of some Brett giving a barnyard characteristic but that sort of blows off (or at least becomes less obvious) with cherries, earth, blackened poblano, underripe plum, and purple Sweet Tarts taking a more central role. On the palate, it’s mostly dark cherry and blackberries showing very little in the way of evolution. Medium+ acid, medium- tannin. The finish was super long. I was really impressed how young this wine was coming across; hardly an indication of anything that would indicate ten years of age. Yet more proof that Beaujolais can cellar quite gracefully. We loved how this paired with grilled rack of lamb and a light salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, garbanzo beans, mozzarella and prosciutto. Grazie Tim! — 18 days ago

Nose is green a bit.

Palate is still fresh. A bit vegetal / herbal. But fun.
