Muscular for Beaujolais, even for Morgon. But not over ripe or rich, just all sinew and iris and granite red fruit. Clearly best when poured BTG from Jero.

Gourmandise/Full, and thus not as expected. Still very delicious.

Ké Ké does VV. A little more full throttle and darker than his father, Georges'. Air helps. #kogodwinemerchant

15.5/20 (86/100) Аромат вишневого варенья, дыни, бананов и стойкая нота жидкости для снятия лака. Довольно высокая кислотность. Танины шершавые. Ягодное во вкусе, но «летучка» заметна и здесь до жжения в горле. Базовый Morgon у него мне нравится больше.

Wow - power Beauj, unexpected. Dark, Somewhat austere (age) yet also fruity. Maybe that’s the old vines? Not sure what to compare it to - maybe a good CDP
