Beaujolais Gamay 2017

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?! 😅

Super complex and drinking great, with flavors that span the gamut from cranberry to Earl Grey tea, along with tons of spice and dried roses. Love the texture and length. A vibrant, constantly changing, bright and funky wine, full of life. Loved it. — 2 days ago

Côte du Py Morgon Gamay 2017

Very good restaurant list value. Classic Morgon with strawberry and raspberry fruit combined with earth and tobacco. Bolder than other Morgon’s I’ve had, but I actually love that quality. Tannins went nicely with the beef and pork. — 14 days ago

Morgon Gamay

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.

So pure, intense cherry and minerals. Didn’t have the depth or complexity of the Metras, but wonderful on its own terms. Great acid and verve. Very fresh and fun, loved it with a slight chill. — 2 days ago

Eponym' Morgon Gamay 2015

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

Cru du Beaujolais Chiroubles Gamay 2017

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
