The final white of JJ Morel I will ever taste. First one that is not with him thanks to Covid-19. It’s bittersweet. Just an amazing nose. So bright. So high toned. Citrus jelly. Smoke. Hickory. Hazelnuts. Saline. Inside of a fancy chocolate found in some exotic assortment box. The one you have to ask “what’s in this?” Palate is electricity. Impossibly complex. Stunning deep and very expressive minerality. Perfect supernal balance. Big attack. Long and gentle finish. Amazing mid palate. Finish is super zesty. Pure and layered. The sum of the parts in full effect here. A wine of indescribable genius. A swan song like no other.

What a nose. Stunning clarity, lemon, lemon peel, clean air, amazing purity, it’s so mineral, so balanced, so clean, so pure. It’s just ridiculous. It’s so elegant and focused. What a finish.

What a nose. Huge Apple, pear, lanolin, herbs, mint sprig, complex, so deep. Headspinning. Palate is subservient. So deep and so clean. Complex, rich, balanced. So pure. Like Boito.

Wow. Utterly magnificent for village puligny. Genius wine. Worth $100 easy. When morel hits it he hits it. Nose is so elegant. Fresh rainwater. Yellow flowers. Beautiful. The palate is sweet mineral goodness. Like a sweet rock was pulverized in your mouth. Long finish. A wine of beauty and distinction. Too bad French over regulation caused him to throw in the towel.

As this aerates the nose is beautiful. The palate is richer. But in such an elegant way.

This needs an hour to peak. Wow. This is gorgeous. Grand cru gorgeous. Wow. Hand over land. Lol. The ultimate king slayer to bring to a burgundy tasting.
