Vieilles Vignes Corcelette Morgon Gamay 2018

Definitely recommend a several hour decant (or even better, several more years). Beautiful deep purple color in the glass. A hint of those carbonic notes on the palate but overall this is really very good with deep red berry fruit and a persistent refreshing finish with great acid. Nice pairing with cheeseburgers. — 6 hours ago

Schiste Bellevue Morgon 2015

Gave this around an hour of air. The nose is fragrant & expressive. Flowers & spices accent the fruit. The palate is a bit more layered & complex than the Delys from the same vintage. Fruit, spice & a hint of smoke. Moderate grip on the end. This is showing very well. — 5 days ago

Château des Jacques

Roche Noire Morgon Gamay 2015

The third bottle, still as delicious, of this Beaujolais with southern accents. If he was blind he could easily call Saint-Joseph, for example. The crunchiness of the typical gamay fruit is associated here with a rather dense general structure with a material of black fruit and roasted or toasted notes. 2015 is awesome 👍 — 13 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

Bright fruit on the nose. A very beautiful color of purple. In the mouth a lot of crunchy red fruits, we detect a little note of banana. The acidity is a little too strong for my taste at this point. It flows quickly and the bottle quickly ends, but it left me wanting more...

Delys Morgon Gamay 2015

Gave this about 45 minutes of air. The nose was all power. Big dark cherry & strawberry fruit aromatics. More power on the palate. Rich dark fruit with more concentration than expected. Tannins are chalky with a good grip. This is showing well, and is a genuine pleasure to drink. Not terribly complex at this point, but not sure if I’d be asking for that from this wine. — 11 days ago

@Anthony Lombardi in my experience, these Bouland wines do age into more complexity

Surprisingly well

Vieilles Vignes Beaujolais-Villages Gamay 2018

Delicious natural wine with a reduced sulfur content: aromatic explosion of floral flavors: peony, rose, violet. Lots of fruit (red and black) and freshness in a round and fresh wine. A real treat — 7 days ago

In a great place. Voluptuous nose. Deep cherry, some earth, some feral, so alluring, huge mint and menthol, so so deep. What a nose. A knockout. Palate is so juicy and energetic. Deep and luscious with insane freshness and zowie purity. Clean and palate staining with atrocious length. Bravo. — 9 days ago

Chiroubles Gamay 2014

Gorgeous nose. Floral, soft, orange rind, sour cherry, mid season cherry, berry fruit, so vivid, sweet cherries, evocative and expansive, 14’s in a great spot. Tons of earth and mineral. Palate is elegant and pretty. Sappy and pure with nice force on the backend. Really lovely. The most Volnay of the Lafarge-Vial wines but also classically Chiroubles. Awesome. — 8 days ago

Château Les Bertrands

Coup de Foudre Fleurie Gamay 2017

Well balanced bottle with great darker red fruit (wild strawberries, raspberries) that has a bit of tannin to keep the wine together. Nice spiciness to it that really just draws you in. — 7 days ago

Beaujolais Gamay 2018

Dense fruit yet light on the palate. Fortuitous forward but has some minerality and spice that give some volume. Some of the best Beaujolais out there. Oh and the label is fun! — 10 days ago
