Grippy, dark and brooding but still crisp and mineraly — 16 days ago
The nondescript "N" in the bottom corner of the back label means this is the hard to find Sans Soufre version of Lapierre's Morgon. I believe 2021 was first time it's touched Texas soil. It's the more alive version. The wilder, riskier, more outspoken version. It's chatty and conversational, less raw and abrasive. Texture too - a big boy with loaded concentration and high velocity acid. Perfumed cherry raspberry, rose petal, forest earth, pine, and clove. — 6 days ago
Beautiful Beaujolais cru with Burgundian style. Bright macerated notes of cherry, raspberry. Infused caractere with nuances of liquorice, dried flowers and spices. Light on the attack, the final would tend towards the mid-bodied, with a nice concentration and complexity on a final with finely persistent mineral and tannins shades supported by partial oak aging that brings a lot of class.
Superbe cru du Beaujolais aux allures bourguignonnes. Notes vives de cerise, framboise macérées. Caractère infusé avec des nuances de réglisse, de fleurs séchées et épices. Léger de prime abord, la finale tendrait vers le mi-corsé, avec une belle concentration et complexité sur une finale aux nuances minérales et tanins finement persistants soutenus par un élevage partiel en fût qui apporte beaucoup de classe. Potentiel de garde 7-10 ans. — 4 days ago
The elegant side of gamay. At the same time light, and with many shades. Rich notes of raspberry, floral, herbaceous etc. 2017 is beautiful and can still deliver beautiful surprises in the coming years. Magnum format ideal, for parties with friends.
Le gamay en toute élégance. A la fois léger, et pourvu de nombreuses nuances, entre notes de framboise, florales, herbacées etc. 2017 est magnifique et pourra encore délivrer des belles surprises au cours des années à venir. Format Magnum idéal, pour les soirées entre amis. — 4 days ago
Part 2 of Columbia County wknd: closed Beaujo, quite refined but this needs a good decant or some time. Black cherries, a plum- ier note. Rather compact body & closed on the nose. Still, nicely accompanied Grilled steelhead trout on cedar planks. I suspect this is one Morgon that needs nurturing. Never had this producer before, to the amazement of the wine store guy. — 7 days ago
I just love Fleurie wines – they’re gulpably delicious and versatile. Here we have a delightfully-perfumed and bright representation with Anne-Sophie DuBois, Les Cocottes, 2019, ABV 12.5%. 💕👏🍷
This wine is made with Gamay grapes and hails from the Beaujolais Cru appellation of Fleurie. 🇫🇷 The grapes used to produce this wine were farmed organically and grown on the famous pink granite slopes of this region, with a beneficial south-southwest orientation towards the sun ☀️, offering good exposure throughout the growing season, aiding in the ripening process.
This wine was vinified using the whole grape clusters 🍇 and was subject to ‘carbonic maceration’, where fermentation begins initially within the confines of the intact grapes under a blanket of carbon dioxide. This process is known to highlight the purity of fruit characteristics along with customary notes of bubblegum, cinnamon, banana, kirsch, among other expected characteristics.
👁 It’s medium purple with a delicate haze. 👃 On the nose it is light and perfumed with youthful notes of cherry blossom alongside cherry preserves, wild strawberry, kirsch, banana, nutmeg, balanced with mineral notes like wet slate. 👄 On the palate this wine is dry, it has a brighter, tarter flavor profile, with vibrant acidity, a light body, medium alcohol, light tannins, and good fruit concentration. It has a medium finish. 😍😍😍
We’re pairing this wine with tarragon chicken and caprese. 👌👌👌👌
