Lavender perfume, red fruits, smoked meat. This speaks to my soul.

This one is for the Beaujolais haters @Moya Shawley and hey, I used to be one too. My Beaujolais journey reminds me of whitewater rafting obsession. After being not impressed with class 4s in Colorado and California, I drove to West Virginia to conquer the big momma jamma of class 5s on a small raft. There I found the thrill, danger and finesse that is in the reminiscent of this lovely bottle of Morgon. One experience leaves you feeling blasé, while the other makes your heart beat out of your chest. Starting with violets, minerals, raspberry and cherries, evolving into more earthy forest floor and slightly darker fruits, it stands up with a character that shouts I’m stronger than your previous experiences. Now I’m reminded of why I’m hooked on big water and Beaujolais.

Beautiful delicately balanced wine with a deep layered bouquet that unfolds over hours. Raspberry jam, violet candy, morello cherries, wet moss and stones, herbal with some brine and dill. Supply and textured on the palate. Balanced acidity; gentle tannins. This is really fine cru Beaujolais in a good balanced vintage. Expensive for bojo; would love to have a case in my cellar if I could afford to.

On the first day, quite short and closed. After three days in the fridge, much more expressive and open with lots of spices on the nose. Quite light in the mouth, but very fresh and persistent.
