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.

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. — 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. — 4 months ago

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.

I don’t know if it’s the five years of age, but it was short in the mouth despite promising beginnings. The nose was absolutely lovely. — 3 months ago
