Cuvée 3.14 Morgon Gamay 2014

2014 old vines #morgonstudy - Interestingly, while the Lapierre was a touch more alcoholic (13% vs. 12.5%), it was lighter and more playful on this night. Foillard's 3.14 was concentrated, dense, sported a dark red fruit spectrum, smoky, and very mineralic. My biggest problem with this wine was its disjointed tannins. Nevertheless, it was a joy to drink and really energetic. — 5 months ago

Cuvée Marcel Lapierre Morgon Gamay 2014

2014 old vines #morgonstudy - While I loved the two wines, Lapierre's was certainly the pièce de résistance of the night. It was hauntingly aromatic, floral with a brighter fruit profile and finer tannins than the Foillard. Both had acid and rocks aplenty, worthy of being called "red kabinetts". My conclusion: The Lapierre for drinking now, and the Foillard in 3-5 years, but they both have the concentration (but perhaps not SO2) to stand the test of time. — 5 months ago

@Severn Goodwin Did some reading up. Apparently the Athanor's a one off cuvee made of a blend of all the ripest grapes. Comes in at a whopping 15.5% abv.

@Aaron Tan Oof... Is that an Aussie Shiraz or a Gamay? Lol
