I adore the wild character of this wine. Unreal spice on the nose, soppy cherries, soupy but so clean, mineral, tree bark, some sous bois. Palate is ripe, juicy and fresh. Terrific acids and so so pure. Clean. Juicy and slippery. Loads of red cherry and black cherry fruit. Elegant tannins. Long finish. Charmingly rustic. Awesome freshness and the nose is super expressive. — 24 days ago
This is very very good. Nose has granite, hint of brett, but it’s very well integrated and adds to the allure. Perfumed spices and some dark flowers along with gorgeous red berry fruit. Palate is sweet, silky and so finesse driven. Almost delicate for a Cornas. Concentrated and dazzlingly pure with deft precision and unreal length. Sleek, suave and so well made. Energetic and so fresh with lovely granite on the finish. Super. Might be a 9.5. I’ll be back.
Another 9.5 Cornas after Mega air. Just texturally stunning. Poor man’s Allemand. So sultry. Huge concentration and depth. Stunning purity. — 15 days ago
Bruised apple, oxidative notes on nose. Lemon zest on palate, fine bubbles & a clean lingering finish leaving you wanting another sip. — 12 days ago
The new Bourgogne Rouge from JJ Morel. Beautiful cherries, spice, lovely ripeness. Very inviting. Brown sugar. So good. So Morel. Palate is full of fruit, some charming rusticity, slatey tannins. Terrific amplitude and energy. So fresh. Juicy like nothing else. Long finish. Love this wine. Only two vintages. 17 and 18. — 22 days ago
Gorgeous nose. Peanut butter, tropical fruits, minerals, yellow fruits, very high toned and has great breadth. Very elegant, very elegant, wow, superb airiness and also some classic St. Peray richness. Clean as whistle. So fresh and so clean. Juicy like nothing else and such intense flavor impact. Deep structure, very good acidity and freshness and finished almost tannic, with savory and salty hints. Superb. — 24 days ago
