Les Impenitents Javernières Morgon Gamay 2020

But…there it was. It sang it’s siren song.
N: Big , beefy, dirty red beet, musky black cherries. Smoke and tar.
P: Black cherries, blood, iron, earth, dirt,
It’s said the Coté du Py Gamay vines are 100 years +. It shows. A knockout structured Beaujolais that’s always a fave. Delicious, if I was 40, I’d make plans to stash some away for 20 years.
A bit saved, day two, blacker and more tannic.
To quote Romain..” I love it.”!!!

La Pointe du Coteau Gamay 2017

Loire gamay - Ruby/violin color, unfiltered. Oaky dominant, notes of farms, associated with varietal notes of cherries, pomegranate slightly set back. Wait another two years for the whole to melt.

Couleur rubis/violine non filtré. Notes dominantes boisées d’élevages, associés au notes variétales griottes, grenade légèrement en retrait. Attendre encore deux ans que l’ensemble se fonde.

Cuvée Vieilles Vignes Puisseguin-Saint- Emilion Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

2015 vintage. Very attractive nose, refined and balanced. Also tasted impressive 2021 primeur samples from this beautiful organic estate, owned by Olivia and Didier Le Calvez, pioneers in agroforestry. An estate to watch closely. — 3 months ago

This is on auto-pilot. By the glass at Mercer Kitchen, and I rate this as excellent.
Slightest hint of butterscotch on the nose, transitions effortlessly to a bright and balanced mid-palate. Moderate acidity melds with a softness driven by brioche, honey and nutmeg. I need some of this in my cellar.

Aux Pierres Javernières Morgon Gamay 2020

Louis Claude Desvignes
Morgon Aux Pierres Javernieres
From a parcel of the Cote Du Py
Second oldest vines they have , 60 yr +
Desvignes likes a submerged cap and employs a grid with varying times and % of cluster depending on product.
N:Inky black, smashed strawberries, some coal tar, herbs, endlessly developing.Smoke & meat. echoed on the palate.
P:Light and dense at the same time, grippy. Blackberries, bright, nice acidity.
I bet w patience, this would round out nicely, crunchy now.All the dark berries.
The little brother of Les Impenitents.
Quality like this from Morgon always makes spring a bit better.
