Morgon, Beaujolais

M. & C. Lapierre à Villié-Morgon

Morgon Gamay 2018

Medium purple hue, almost transparent but not quite. Some visible residual sugar/sediemnt on the glass. The nose is packed with ripe cherry, strawberry, raspberry, some tertiary soil and earthy scents. A delight on the pallet with perfectly ripe red berries; followed by dried mushroom, earthy minerals, and an intense acidic finish. This is ultra smooth, light bodied, dry and fully acidic. It has harmonious mouthfeel however, with complex highs and lows, which are truly captivating.

Must say this is, absolutely, the best Beaujolais I’ve ever tasted. Paired with pan seared Alaskan Halibut on a butter habanero sauce. Follow on IG@ermitan.iv for more. Cheers.

Cuvée 3.14 Morgon Gamay

17.5 Has it all - forward nose, great fruit, some complexity, long. Could last 5 more years, but that’s not what I drink Morgon for. Perfect with poussin and calcots. — 2 days ago

The whole package - fresh, vivid, fleshy, intense, layered, long. Hums with energy. Plenty of structure to boot, this will evolve well. Flat out delicious. — a month ago

Morgon Gamay 2014

Great nose. Bigger bodied than I had expected. Leans heavy towards sweet red berries. Even the alcohol is noticeable. Feels rather young still, Descombes wines really do develop slowly. — 16 days ago

Insane! What a wine! Serious step up versus the classic Morgon. Beautiful nose, fruity start and than the deeper layers pop up. — 8 days ago

Les Charmes Morgon Gamay 2017

Excellent but a bit one dimensional. Probably the laggard amount his Crus. Still probably as good as the best others offer. — 7 hours ago
