This was an exceptionally good Morgon. Would never have guessed blind. Closer to a Cote de Nuits......

Lots going on in the nose and mouth, but very flabby and disjointed. Nose is so feral, with barnyard and intense minerality taking the lead. In the mouth, though, it’s very hot and a little scorchy. Yes, it has nice fruit, but still. Lots of components but they just don’t fit together well in a package. Freakin’ 15s.

Nose is a bit mute. Some heat, not much focus. Juicy and lacking energy. Maybe will improve with air. Good fruit but lacks focus and is hot.

An intoxicating nose and a palate that’s spicy at first, but starts to go away after 45 minutes of air. Still quite young, so it’s still tight, but easy to drink and easy to enjoy!

2016 vintage - There was a time when I was new to tasting Gamay when I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to distinguish its character from a lesser Pinot Noir.... year of trying and wines like this and NOW I CAN. There’s an extra “wood/brushy” aspect to this wines fruit aromas; like a red plum with some stem still attached. Brilliant transparent fruit like cherry and plum with hints of cinnamon spice and brush. So fresh in the mouth, extra drinkable...Very well made! Bravo!

Expressive wild black cherries on firm structure. Earthiness in hiding right now; drinking well already though.
