    September 30, 2016 - Plenty of wines at Pine Lake Trout Club (Pine Lake Trout Club): Killer showing for this wine IMO. Pop and pour. It is still young but getting there though still a few years at least from peak. The nose is great with cherries and sour cherries. What a great texture. Silky yet almost powerful. No real tannins but this is a muscular wine. Think Thomas Hearns if that makes sense. Great sour cherry fruit on the palate. Vibrant. Tight layers of complexity. Long finish. This wine is not great for a Beaujolais, it is great!

    August 26, 2016 - Potent, lots of verve. Different from conventional Morgon meaty style.

    August 19, 2016 - Vin de soif, de finesse et de plaisir. 7 ans en cave et il se montre d'une extrême jovialité. Le fruit est là, se montrant noir, rouge mais toujours enveloppé de belles notes d'épices douces. Les tanins sont faits de cette soie que l'on tisse les foulards de ces dames; doux, chatoyants, frais, caressants. Il sera difficile de ne pas ouvrir les autres bouteilles tellement il set facile de succomber à ce charme

    August 19, 2016 - Better than the last bottle we tried, but still rather unremarkable. Not sure this wine has enough 'there' there to improve with age, but I think I'll let my last few bottles sit for a while and hope for the best.

    August 15, 2016 - Delicious. Dark red fruit. It still has much life left.

    (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+
