"Cuvée Corcelette" Morgon Gamay 2021

Foillard’s “Cuvée Corcelette” comes from the eponymous climate in Morgan where Jean’s holdings include vines over 80 years of age. This is a stunning wine that is so Foillard in style: fresh and deep.

Popped and poured; enjoyed over two days. Consistent over both days but seemed to round out a little more on Day 2. The wine pours a deep, hazy ruby with a near opaque core and an almost fuchsia rim; medium viscosity with light staining of the tears and some signs of sediment. On the nose, the wine is developing with sensational notes of macerated raspberries, red flowers, carrot juice, celery root, chanterelles, granitic earth and minerals. On the palate, the wine is dry with medium tannin and medium+ acid. Confirming the notes from the nose. The finish is medium+ and so easy to love. Super balanced. Drink now and over the next 10+ years.

Cuvée Marcel Lapierre Morgon Gamay

A bit divisive amidst our merry cohort of two- I felt was subtly elegant & not as monotone as my drinking buddy. Fine grained, dark cherries, a brooding character. Certainly not complex which makes me wonder if it’s shut down or needs more air. I’ll give it an …. Incomplete — 18 days ago

Clos de la Roilette Griffe du Marquis Fleurie Gamay 2018

As good as Beaujolais gets. From the oldest vines at Roilette. Have had numerous bottles of Griffe and it always delivers. Darker and heavier then typical Cru Beaujolais. More cherry and less berry flavor. Little tannic and ages well. Just getting harder to secure bottles. — 9 days ago

Clos De La Roilette

Cuvée Tardive Fleurie Gamay 1998

Savory on the nose with a little brett, a little leather, and raspberry fruit, carrying forward on the palate where the leather becomes more prominent but with plenty of fruit. Holding up extremely well. — a month ago
