Medium Ruby with red fruit and floral spice aromas. On the palate flavors of red raspberry, cherry, banana and earthy mint. Vivid acidity, fine tannins, medium+ finish, ending with fruit and spice.

It was fondue night so let’s drink some Beaujolais! This is my second time enjoying the 2021 Lapierre Morgan “S” and the first was enjoyed over the course of several days. With that first experience, there was positive evolution until the last glass. This time, I chose to pour into a decanter several hours prior to dinner. No formal notes but this exhibits a beautiful bouquet of raspberries, strawberries, pink flowers, herbs, stone minerals, and just a touch funky…reminding you of Lapierre’s natural sensibilities. Structure is medium…though acid kinda creeps up into the medium+ category. A wonderful pairing with fondue made with a 50/50 of Gruyère/Raclette and served in the Swiss style. Drink now with an extended decant or enjoy through 2031.

All the sayisfying, licorice-filled, clean, floral brightness I’ve come to expect from this cuvée. Ripe red berry fruit on the palate. Very enjoyable if less concentrated than the past few vintages.

Lovely and complex. Opened up nicely over the course of a fall steak dinner. Earthly but still crisp and lovely.

Wait on this. We were thirsty. Don’t judge us.
But seriously wait on this. An abundance of stems (great) that actually lacks some element of fruit at the moment. With some air it it didn’t feel like it fully integrated so I would say wait on this one for a bit.
