Very nice, the 2016 version of this bottle is special and unique, you can see my prior notes for a little more background.

That is a nice bottle! - but, alas, I did not drink it with my friend @Owen Mazon ( it should be a ‘ shared’ not ‘tagged’ post). That said, I just bought a few Roillette Fleurie Tardive’18s @Severn Goodwin , can’t wait!

My, is this gorgeous. Reads very much like a Chinon on the nose and makes an excellent case for the variety in Stellenbosch. But as intellectually satisfying as it is, it’s a sheer pleasure to drink. — 25 days ago

Nice! I thought you maybe became a wine maker when I saw the decanter.

P'tit Max Morgon Gamay 2015

Nose has deep, ripe black cherry, mashed red cherry, old roses, baking spice (light) and dry earth. The cherry nose is quite overpowering, very intense.

Palate has sweet black cherry, under-ripe red cherry with mild tannins, sweet spice on the trailing end of a very long finish. Fruit is rich and silky, but still somewhat tight after a 6+ hour decant. This bottle still needs years, revisit post 2022+.

I am always delighted when drinking bottles from any of the Gang of Four, but their top-tier bottles are always the most special and unique. I think at a 10-year birthday, this bottle will easily rival some of the best Pinot Noirs to the north in Burgundy. The best in Beaujolais generally need many years to come together, Morgon is no exception, needing the most cellaring for satisfaction, in my experience. Take note this wine comes from a plot of 90+ average year old Gamay, in only a 2 ha plot (just under 5 acres in USA speak), not many bottles will come from that effort. (It wasn't even made in 2016 due to low yield after the frost.) Seek, have patience and be rewarded.
