Chénas, Beaujolais

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

🚨WINE HACK🚨 for a very limited audience which may just be me. If you 1) own a sodastream, but no expensive wine gadgets 2) have a wine which needs to come off sediment but you don’t want to expose to oxygen [eg a delicate or low/no so2 gamay] 3) you want to enjoy it over a number of days because you’re either a recluse who’s getting older and can only drink so much or your wife/husband/parter is traveling for work, or, in my case, both: Try decanting the wine carefully into a clean empty bottle pre-flooded with a few gentle pumps of co2 from your sodastream. Co2 is heavier than air. This works and I swear by it!

The Foillard was beautiful. Licorice, black raspberries, unbelievable purity and poise that reminds me why I fell in love with Beaujolais in the first place, and affirms what has been an oft-times rocky love affair ever since.

Quartz Chénas Gamay 2016

Charming, floral, vegetal nose. Fruity and tense mouth, with beautiful floral notes (peony) and a beautiful almost saline mineral line that leads to the tasting. It's a very nice balance between greed and refinement, with superb drinkability. Gamay as I like it💕

Nez charmeur, floral, végétal. Bouche fruitée et tendue, avec toujours de belles notes fleuries (pivoine) et une belle ligne minérale presque saline qui conduit la dégustation. C’est un très belle équilibre entre gourmandise et raffinement, avec une superbe buvabilité.Le Gamay comme j’aime 💕

Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2017

A little riper and fleshier than ideal for me but still typically fresh, perfumed and imbued with an undercurrent of earthy sensibility below the plush dark fruit. Needs a bit more time maybe — 12 days ago

Grille Midi Fleurie Gamay 2017

Very vegetal and fine expression of gamay. Nose mixing cherry, raspberry and herbaceous notes, infused, hay, vetiver. With 4 years of aging 2017 has magnificently evolved on notes of dried flower petals (rose, peony), truffle and humus, the mouth also displays liquorice and root notes. A precise wine, of great delicacy, with very fine tannins. To ventilate a good hour before tasting so as not to miss it. For this price range, it's a very beautiful wine.

Expression très végétale et fine du gamay. Nez mêlant cerise, framboise et notes herbacées, infusées, foin, vétiver. Avec 4 ans de garde 2017 a magnifiquement évolué sur des notes de pétales de fleurs séchées (Rose, pivoine), truffe et humus, la bouche déploie également des notes réglissées et racines. Un vin précis, d’une grande délicatesse, au tanins très fins. A aérer une bonne heure avant dégustation pour ne pas passer à côté. Pour cette gamme de prix c’est un très beau vin.

Dark fruits, like the 2010, so pure and clean, this is less-evolved, and a tad more complex, long finish, really lovely!! — 5 days ago

Domaine de Roche-Guillon

Clos De La Tour Fleurie Gamay 2018

Very good. Fragrant nose is classic Bojo: ripe, deep, crunchy cherry and tons of crushed granite. A nice warm autumn spice note too. On the palate, it’s a tad more austere than the nose would lead you to expect. Tons of crushed granite minerals, a bit of dark cherry in the background. It’s fairly extracted, with some chalky tannin and a bit of bitter astringency in the finish. Overall, good, but it’s definitely a wine that benefits from being drunk with food rather than on its own. — 4 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

A lot of fruit on the nose and palate, strawberries and soft spices, some floral hints too, nice acidity and soft tannins with good texture, the finish is nice, nothing super complex but fresh and drinks easy with that Burgundian style a little more then a pure Bojo vinification style.

Du fruit rouge et encore du fruit, au nez comme en bouche, fraises et épices douces, un côté floral aussi avec une belle acidité et des tannins assez souples et agréables, belle finale, rien de super complexe mais frais et se boit tout seul avec ce style un peu plus Bourguignon. 89-90

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2017

Ripe but with a strong pulse of acidity. Seems to be closed down at the moment showing mostly cranberry but it’s all there on the palate. Has that wildness and ethereality that’s so special when Breton is on. — 11 days ago

Serious Fleurie. More tannic and structured than most, yet still accessible in youth. — 2 days ago
