Hard to decide whether to pair this meal with a mellow piano concerto or raw, soulful funk. And that's what I love about cru Beaujolais.

2013. Joyful juice. Equally appropriate for the picnic table or fine dining. It's classy either way.

It's rare to encounter a Beaujolais that needs decanting but this one absolutely required it. Once it arrived watch out, perfume like aromas for days of red berries, granite minerality, and subtle spices. A top 5 #bojo for me. #kermit #morgon #gamayzing #foillard

Sweet and sour. Not a ton of depth here in richness but layers of complexity continue. Good texture. VA is a bit high for me but brings higher toned fruit. Nice tannins to reel it all in.

This is a dead ringer for Pinot Noir! The magic of really well made Gamay with some bottle age...(sigh) #gamayzing

Tasty...first time exploring this region/style. I was surprised by its thinness but the wine has good fruit with light spice. Kind of reminded me of a slightly diluted CA Pinot. Probably needs more time to breathe

The wine is fully evolved and I'm fully involved. Served with lamb shanks and an Acme levain, this Morgon's delectable midrangey citrus notes accentuate the earthiness of the lamb. If a wine could be said to have umami as a flavor descriptor, this would be it.
