Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

Raspberries, lilacs, wet stone, earthiness. At first the body feels plush and bouncy but then you get bolts of acidity to balance things out. There’s so much depth and complexity. — a day ago

Domaine De La Grand'Cour (Jean-Louis Dutraive)

Lieux-dits "La Grand'Cour - Les Déduits" Fleurie Gamay 2017

Incredible. One of the best wines I’ve drank this year. Seamlessly paired throughout the duration of an entire meal that involved raw crudo, heavily spiced beef tartar, roasted duck breast with morels, and lobster lasagna. Perfect food wine, but also complex, aromatic, and textured. High price point even for cru Beaujolais, but considering the fact that a hail storm wiped out most of this producers lot for the year and the overall depth of the wine, worth every penny. Buy a case...assuming you can find some. — 21 days ago

Super elegant wine that’s drinking really well. Some earthy components are really balancing the pretty fruit notes. Great balance and weight. — a month ago

Nose is a bit barnyardy / bretty to open up with. But I’m sure that will blow off as other bottles of the 14 have been exquisite. Some fruit, mineral and spice lurking underneath. Palate is exquisite. So juicy and complex with wonderful balance and freshness. This is insanely fresh and deep with a silken like structure. Sappy and so mineral. Wonderful fruit. Score goes up as soon as nose gets into its groove. — 21 days ago

Château Thivin

"Reverdon" Brouilly Gamay 2017

REALLY dark fruit. Lush and spicy. Silky smooth. And ready for bizness. Pretty sure that ‘17 Morgons or Moulins will be a longer time forthcoming. — 4 days ago
