Blackberry flintstone vitamin nose. Palate is incredible, textured, concentrated like sweet and tart cherry juice. Concentrated but totally silky, shimmering and transparent. A tiny bit of apple candy. Then this real mineral cut and tension in the mouth, leading to some fine prickly tannic spice, zingy and almost mouth-numbing like prickly ash. Masterful. Reminds me why we drink Beaujolais. The last few vintages I think Lapierre has been knocking it out of the park. This may be the best yet for me. Tremendous, and I think will have 10 years at least, if stored properly.

Drank to a fruit moon. It sang back. Laser sharp bright fruit. Uplifting. I’ll give my next one more time as I’m sure the focus will broaden with short time cellaring.

Classic Lapierre Morton. One of my faves. 2019 needs some more time. Stay tuned in a few months for a more expressive gamay.

Superlative. Complex red and black licorice, herbs, bright fruit. Like candy, herbal, complex. Blonde tobacco, hint of smoke. Limpid ruby.

Goodness this is SO MUCH better than the no-sulphur version. The fruit is pure and shines through, it’s fresh, small red and black berries, bramble fruit, a fizzy quality to it, a touch of aperol orange peel, velvet-smooth yet fresh palate. Fantastic expression of pure Morgon fruit not hidden by overt funk

Nice Morgon but not doing it for me last night. Too young probably and should have been decanted for a few hours. Really didn’t catch the lapierre magic on this one. I’ll save my other two bottles a few years.

Red raspberries, background note of damp soil, and whiff of barnyard. Delicious.

The nondescript "N" in the bottom corner of the back label means this is the hard to find Sans Soufre version of Lapierre's Morgon. I believe 2021 was first time it's touched Texas soil. It's the more alive version. The wilder, riskier, more outspoken version. It's chatty and conversational, less raw and abrasive. Texture too - a big boy with loaded concentration and high velocity acid. Perfumed cherry raspberry, rose petal, forest earth, pine, and clove.
