7/30/2015 - *Vine* wrote: NR

Popped and poured, medium-plus purple ruby, youthful. Subtle yet lovely nose of red berries, under-ripened cherries, freshly tilled soil, stems and an impression of minerals. Lively acidity adds a bit of nerve to the smooth mouthfeel. While a tad hollow in mid-palate expression, this shows delightfully fresh flavors of herbaceous-tinged red fruits and minerals which largely mirror the nose. The tannins have a mild chewiness on the moderate close.
Seems to have settled down a bit and is showing quite nicely at present, a great red to open on a warm summer evening.

Not overly complex - but extremely pure and just because of that a little masterpiece.

Bit of a disappointment. Didn't have the Cru level of nuance and character but also didn't have the quaffable character of the better simpler beaujolais such as Lapierre's Raisins Gaulois.

So bright, fruity and juicy. Has jube-like red berry fruits and some redskin lolly action. It is fine and lacy with a sweet core and a stalky finished flecked with minerals.

Whilst remaining characterful & retaining a presence this is on the downslope. Losing the vigour which made this so enjoyable, previously.

Lean and meaty. Good, but not as good as some of the better 2013 beaujolais (Sunier, Descombes, Foillard).

Elegant, fresh and complex. That about sums it up. It's amazing that a wine this light can have so much flavor. The red fruit is still quite prominent, but I really loved the brown tobacco element that kept popping up on the nose and palate. Beautiful wine.

Oeil rubis foncé;
Le nez est au départ sur le fruit surette, on sent une certain acidité & des ponites métalliques. Il y a aussi une trame de note d'étable. +/- invitant sous cette forme. Le temps par-contre replace le bouet (un peu), le fruité est plus présent, légèrement fumée. Les épices s'joutent aussi & des notes végétales...
La bouche est sur un fruité relativement mince, l'acidité est prononcé & la finale est sur des notes métalliques. Tout comme au nez, le temps améliore les choses, le fruité est plus présent, l'aspect métallique reste mais est beaucoup plus subtil.
Bref, journée difficile au bureau?
Bouteille pas à son meilleur...

Light ruby in color. Raspberry, candy apple and a hint of smoke on the nose. Classic Gamay fruit, fairly simple but pleasant to drink. Paired with a garden salad topped with fried chicken and consumed mostly outside. Did not really change over three hours.

Needed 30 minutes to shine. Dark blackish red color. On nose, wet stone, black cherry, strawberry & touch of dirt. On palate, dark cherry, strawberry, some other dark fruits that I can't name. Medium+ body, high acids & nice finish - surprising flavor profile for a Beaujolais. Very nice. 91+

After a totally underwhelming Brun Morgon last night here is a return to form. This is an S bottle and it's a terrific display of fresh, pure, full-on fruit. I am reminded of the little strawberries that are in season right now. Very, very drinkable--as in gulps, not sips--and thoroughly enjoyable.

Also found this to be slightly effervescent and my first thought was more cherry lambic than Beaujolais, but that's not really a bad thing. Very tart. I'm no expert, but I have a feeling that this wine is simple Beaujolais as it should be.

From magnum over 2 days, this is just in a great place. The ripe, concentrated fruit made it a real crowd pleaser, but the mineral backbone was a great secondary. Doesn't seem like it is going anywhere, but certainly ready to go now.

Ruby color. Very floral on the nose. 8th vintage of this wine I have had. Always a well rounded wine and that appears to be continuing after the passing of Marcel. Notes of cherry, charcoal and spices. Velvety mouthfeel. 91 points.

Very closed. Virtually no nose (lots of strawberry last time.) Must have shut down ... hopefully just temporarily.

Super clean, without any chicken shack or reduction. Violets, granite, nutmeg, cardamom and pure Gamay fruit. Transparent taste with a nice balance of juice, lively acidity, light yet somewhat grippy tannins, and a refreshingly mineral finish without any sensations of alcohol (12%). Not that long, but lots of pleasure nonetheless. More harmonious and less edgy than the '13 was at the same stage. Probably best in a few years - it has the acidity to keep.

very closed upon opening, but this developed fast in the glass, within 30 minutes this opened to a full and soft red fruited wine. No acid to speak of so this would be a "drink me now" wine given some time to open initially. Fun and fruity.

Really nice. Lots of bright, sappy cherry and red berried fruit here tinged with earth and floral notes, all conveyed with a sense of finesse and polish on a medium weight frame. It's a much bigger wine than the standard Lapierre Morgon, but while there's more density and depth here, it has the same freshness and liveliness to the flavours that I always expect from Lapierre.

Very complex wine! Thank you to the wife for the gift! Goes very well with our first meal with the new smoker. Smells and tastes of Cab, Pinot, Merlot, and Zin all rolled into one very nice wine. If you need an above average everyday wine this is your winner!

Light red. Prototypically light, spicy, tart cherry, and a bit of herb. Zingy and bright, just as it should be.
