    September 12, 2014 - A little shut down right now. But always a nice wine.

    August 14, 2014 - - Purple color and aromas of raspberry and strawberry. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of raspberry, strawberry and black pepper with a light/medium body. Smooth texture with a medium finish.

    August 7, 2014 - Transparent cranberry color. Nose of red currant and earth. Mouth likewise. Medium weight. Strong acidity. Medium finish. I find I want to taste more and more to explore further. So sorry this is my last bottle. I should have waited.

    (Marcel Lapierre Morgon) From the hands of the late Marcel Lapierre, this wine has a dark yet vibrant character in the glass, the aromatics possess brilliant fruit, fresh and beautifully poised on the edge of ripeness. There are hints of blackcurrants and a raspberry tartness, intense and concentrated but not sweet or creamy. It has a perfumed, floral, crunchy-skin style which lends it a wonderful vibrancy. There is some super savoury-edged fruit, an intense backbone of vibrant acids, and overall a supple, lively, vigorous and vibrant midpalate leading into a linear, crunchy finish. Super stuff.

    (Marcel Lapierre Morgon) #1; COLOR-medium/dark; NOSE-crushed fresh berries; sour cranberry; and a little bit of funk; PALATE-this is literally one of the best Beaujolais's that I've ever had; great sour cherry; medium body; I'm completely blown away by the silkiness and structure of this wine; it's like cream throughout the palate; this is crazy floral; a cassis component that I find very attractive and has a delicious factor; I highly recommend; DS-93; GV-92+
