    May 4, 2017 - **

    This note covers several bottles. All were MTR09 S 09/09/10 (on back label)
    12/10:
    C: Beautiful clear red Gamay.
    N: Sour cherry, with notes of lilac.
    P: Sublime, ethereal. Sour cherry, cherry pit, floats like a fairy. This wine is almost magic!
    12/11:
    Just as good, but maybe a touch darker. Took about 1 hr to open.
    1/13:
    Decanted about 90 min, then back in bottle. A bit acid or tannic to start, but with air it really sang! A great, great wine. Everything integrated. I would be hard put to tell it from a Burg. Didn’t get any cranberry notes, the slight creaminess was not there either.
    12/12/15:
    (Double) decanted about 1 hour. No signs of fading, or being shut down! Nice lively fruit and acid, deep and interesting palate. Just lovely.
    5/4/2017:
    Decanted one hour.
    Very smooth and integrated. After the decant, not much sign of the Bojo "cranberry crunch." This wine has grown up and left home, it's still very interesting but a much suaver, integrated and more interesting
    personality than in its youth. Complemented roast chicken very well indeed.

    March 19, 2017 - Perfect. Served at cellar temperature and it just sang. Wonderful balance of fruit and acidity.

    March 12, 2017 - This has turned all soft and floral and pretty since I last had it. Strikes me as a peak spot for drinking.

    March 8, 2017 - Ruby red in color. 13% ABV. Pretty nose of red fruits, rose petals and forest floor. Medium body with medium acidity. Fresh and vibrant. Cherries, cranberries, earth and minerals on the palate. The finish is exquisite. Lovely Beaujolais. Tremendous now but should age gracefully for another 3-5 years.

    (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+
