Popped, tasted, then back in the fridge it went, and by golly did it shine the next day! Notes mirrored the first time I had this - red fruits, floral, herbal, but now with heaps of briny elements. The brininess and acidity on the palate was so mouth-watering. Kept me going back for more and before I knew it, there was none left. Breaking my own rule for wine (i.e. meant to be shared) has never felt so good. Darn you, Metras!
My only issue with this bottle is that it felt a little more "natty" than the first, which could be a product of the extra air. If you look back at my previous notes, it's already got a pretty feral element, but this had a sort of "beany" savoury finish that I see a lot in natural wines. Still, it doesn't dominate.
NB: According to Wineanorak, this comes from a parcel in Fleurie that was taken out of the cru classification because it was too high up (500m). What?! 😅 — 6 days ago
2017 Marcel Lapierre Morgon in the House!
Did you know that Morgon is the second largest Cru (group of vineyards) in Beaujolais after Brouilly?
Yea anyway.... This Full Bodied Gamay was dope🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥. Deep Garnet, Red fruit on the nose like cherry or pomegranate.
I get plum, & nectarine/peach.
Nice finish !
I’d give it around 91 points.

I’m trying to just get through the last of my 15 Bojos. Such a clumsy, blocky vintage. This one is one of the better ones. Tangy, ripe nose also sports smoky crushed rock. Flavorful and full in the mouth. Decent acids keep it from being a hot mess. A little flat in the finish. Not elegant, but a very nice dinner accompaniment. — 15 days ago
a frank, intensely fruity wine. ruby color, deep, great vivacity, fresh red and black fruits, generous floral notes. At less than 9 € it's perfect! I do not see where else in Beaujolais we can have such beautiful wines for a price so low. Long live France! ... I loved this wine with pastas al Pesto. — 4 days ago
