Morgon, Beaujolais

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2016

Another excellent btl, a little more than a year since my last. On the nose, wild strawberry doused in sugar, cotton candy, lovely green stem notes bring this back down to earth, then nice earthy notes. On the palate, fantastic acidity, soft strawberry, herbal notes, dark cherry, some bark and earth notes, and attenuated tannin on the clean and slightly spicy finish. Yum. — 2 days ago

Vieilles Vignes Morgon Gamay 2016

Delicious and elegant. Nose has wafty, gorgeous candied cherry fruit, granitic minerality, and a background note of barnyard funk to remind you this is not industrial Bojo. In the mouth it’s intensely flavorful but has a light feel and a silky texture. Beautifully pure fruit. Very nice, crisp acids. — 22 days ago

Thaddeus Morgon Gamay 2013

Brought this back from Paris, recommended to me by the shop owner at Les Caprices de l’instant. Delicious, very good expression of gamay/Bojo. Could’ve aged even longer, plenty of fruit. — 15 days ago

Jean-Ernest Descombes Morgon Gamay 2018

Young and vibrant with very concentrated fruits without being over extracted. Good acidity with a mineral touch. Think this will age well. — 11 days ago

Cuvée Athanor Morgon Gamay 2015

Rich and dark. Light tannins make for a perplexing wine. Very enjoyable all the same. — 20 days ago

@Matt Duncan I'm a big fan, lots of 3.14 in the cellar from before the temporary stop, have tasted the 16, awesome, but the price it now commands is getting too much for my continued pleasure. This 15 is likely the end of the line for this 'label' in our cellar, unless there's a 2018, of course.

I’d be interested to try other vintages of the Athanor. At 15.5% it seemed off the mark for the place and varietal. The 3.14 is awesome. The definition of quaffable!

15, to my knowledge was the only vintage without 3.14, they made Athanor in it's place for 15, 3.14 has since continued.

Cuvee MMXVIII Villié-Morgon Gamay 2018

Tangy and vivid dark fruit with fresh raspberry, and bright strawberry and almost grapefruit on the nose. On the palate young and vibrant. Lots of zest and punch to the fruit. Quite dynamic and punchy. — 17 days ago

Eponym' Morgon Gamay 2015

BlackBerry. Very balanced— herbal, fruity, acidic—packs a punch, sip slow alcohol wise. Still light. Balance. — 12 days ago
