Eponym' Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2018

Lyle Fass
9.2

Beautiful nose. Just so lifted and floral. Raspberry, black cherry, blueberry, pastille effect, herbal, an apothecary vibe in a medieval video game. Palate is lush and very 18. Soft and structured with black cherry and late season red cherries. Not showing much finesse yet but has great balance. Dynamite juiciness. Really engaging and fresh but still a little 18 itis. Ripe and juicy tannins with nice floral fruit notes. Let’s see where this goes.

This stayed the same and lost some focus. 18 Foillards mostly miss the mark

Chiroubles Gamay 2015

Well aged in Magnum format. A very beautiful beaujolese vintage who pinotes as we like. Notes of grape variety: cherries, rose petals and iris.. Beautiful notes of evolution dried flowers, truffled, humus. The 2015 density and the evolving aerial nuances of gamay form a rich and refined bouquet. Very greedy. Interesting final for this type of wine.

Bienn vieilli en format Magnum. Un beau cru du beaujolais qui pinote comme on aime. Notes du cepage: cerises, griottes, pétales de rose et iris.. Notes d’évolution: fleurs séchées, truffées, humus. La densité de 2015 et les nuances évolutives aériennes du gamay forment un bouquet riche et raffiné. Très gourmand. Finale intéressante pour ce type de vin.

Côtes du Jura Poulsard Blend 2018

Decided to give this one another go since I liked it so much last time. Didn’t detect as much cooking oil viscosity as last time but it’s still quite rich. Stimulating bouquet with layered scents of mixed red and black fruit (red cherry & plum, blackberry, fresh bramble), strong savory notes of aged leather, mushroom, game, and barnyard-y smells, spicy oak notes of cloves, cedar, and smoke… and I think I detect some anise seed and sandalwood? On the palate more red n black fruit together including red cherry, blackberry, and blueberry, notable black pepper lingering with smoothed out but grippy tannins on a medium finish. This would probably age well; still a fantastic value for a Friday night from Jura the Underdog — 11 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2015

First try of Foillard and it does live up to the (high) reputation. There’s such a lovely tamed softness here with exceptional integration and length on the palate that I don’t feel the need to qualify that in the context of the grape/region. This is a sophisticated wine that I’m happily drinking now but will surely age well for 5-10 years. — 6 days ago

9.2

Insane spices on the nose. Confectionery cherry fruit. Smells like a Gamay cotton candy machine. Palate is ripe and explosive. Shows some of the 18 “lack of focus” but is pure and linear as well. Was more focused in 17 and I presume 19. Juicy and clean. Doesn’t quite have that ethereal, compact quality it usually has. Also a hint of funk/barnyard on the nose. Showing a tiny bit of heat as well . — 9 days ago

"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2017

Delicious and elegant. This wine was remarkable. I tasted it blind and had trouble placing it because it's structure and aromatic complexity didn't match with my fruit driven expectation of gamay. I've been drinking discount bojo. This was phenom. — 10 days ago

Les Rouges du Dessus 1er Cru Vosne-Romanée Pinot Noir 2012

One of the finest Vosnes we had in a couple of years. Very asian spices and floral, dark cherries, elegant and bold same time, medium bodied with excellent length. Great tension. Top notch stuff. — 17 days ago

La Reine Blanche Sancerre Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Star bright, very pale straw gold. Very inviting nose and medium palate of green apple, citrus rind, and mild chalky mineral. Medium acidity. Ready for your best seafood dishes or soft cheeses. Excellent example of the higher end of Sauvignon Blanc (but at a more midrange price). Drink now through 2024. — 14 days ago
