Lapierre to the rescue after a run of forgettable wines! Reduced at the outset, reveals special substance underneath. Lilac, macerated cherry, strawberry, herbs. Electric, super vivid and intense as expected. Just plain tasty. Glorious match w roast chicken

Beaujolais at its best. Big, pretty floral bouquet, bright and fresh fruit, followed by woody herbs, with an earthy undertone. Finishes forever and ever amen

Still the best village of 2017 among the greatest. Conveniently my friends brought me 6 additional bottles from France 😍

And the winner is.... Lapierre! For their generic village morgon we have then Lapierre morgon 2017 > foillard morgon 2017 > thevenet morgon 2017.

Lilac, ripe cherry, iron, cola, violet, candy cane. The ripe cherry makes a difference. There is a bit of reduction too that goes away after a while. I love this nose.
The palate is wonderful. A strong acid backbone, some tannins in the rear, a bright ripe cherry all along, some grip, a mineral layer too. It is very quafable and in the same time shows some complexity. The finish is long with cherry and Lilac or rose notes.
Wow this is very well crafted. This Beaujolais fix is a blast!

Clean, light, and floral. Went great with roast duck and fennel. Smooth finish with well integrated tannins
