It’s always surprisingly multifaceted. This time there’s a menthol quality broadening the usually joyous bojo raspberry/cranberry/tomato. And so persistent.

The 2018 Lapierre Morgon is a spark plug bursting with energy. Even six hours in the decanter wasn’t enough to get this to uncoil but it started to give a glimpse of things to come. In the glass, it pours a hazy, garnet color. On the nose, it’s all raspberries and apricots. On the palate, it’s raspberries, apricots, rhubarb, dry earth and minerals. Medium tannin. Medium acid. Best to let these sit for a few years in my opinion and could potentially be at their best around 2025. I really like where this is headed.

Didn’t get a chance to try the ‘17 as Cathy did, but I’m getting no Brett in the 2018. Reductive notes for sure, but in balance with acidity and mineral notes. Candied cherry deliciousness. Just as good on Day2, no funkiness, rating upward. A favorite Cru Bojo.

Day one at first impressive and exotically aromatic. Later the same day opening up to strain(s) of clovey-metallic brettanomyces. Day two oxidized and down the drain. Rated as a wine to pop and drink within an hour or two. Cool drinking temperature advised.

This is killer. Slow to reveal its perfume, really needs a decant or slow ox actually. But berry liqueur and violets emerge, some baking spice, then palate has supple texture, super fine and gentle tannins, really nice acid. Truly a wine of pleasure. This wine, like the best from the vintage, combines perfect ripeness with classic elegance and lift.

Really nice, likely better with some age but even now quite delicious. First bottle was corked but this one had beautiful light red and flowers leaping from the glass. Delicious mouthfeel with a nice long finish. Very nice.
