Been a long time since I’ve had one of these. Nose starts off closed but then it stays to unfurl. Red berry, cranberry and cherry fruit. Licorice and even a hint of grapefruit. Palate is dazzlingly fresh and vibrant with gorgeous velvety tannins and terrific length. Still seems young at 15. What wines these were in their youth. Can’t believe how glacially they are aging. Fruit is there on the palate but not as much as I’d like there to be. — 20 hours ago
Smoky minerals, black cherry, orange peel, violets, spice cake, licorice- just a few notes. There’s a lot going on here and it’s intensely satisfying. Grainy tannins, very lengthy finish. Just a superb young Morgon with effortless style and composure whose best years are still well ahead. — 4 days ago
Amazing how much there is left to discover. Chenas, so under the radar, is on par with the best of Beaujolais.
This is exceedingly well balanced, complexed - full bodied but feminine. Aromas exude youth - fresh berries and perfumed flowers. Little bit of orange and raspberry - good chew and acid with velvety plush. Zero tannin nod to Guy Breton - every bit as good. — 10 days ago
Super floral! Needs a few hours (a day really) to come around but after that it’s all lilacs and dried roses with strawberries, cherries, dead leaves, green peppercorns, and wet earth. Drinking like a dream at the moment but not sure how much time the 2011 has left in it. I would drink now or soon. — 8 days ago
