    April 30, 2016 - Popped and poured. The palate shows a lot of spicy red berry flavors with a good amount of tannin still there. The wine is drinking well but is still very young and will reward good cellaring for the next few years.

    April 21, 2016 - This bottle was either flawed in some fashion or extremely closed down. It showed very little on the nose - a little barnyard was the main smell. It tasted lightly of dark cherries and earth. Not much there at all. Could have been corked but none of the telltale smells were detected.

    April 10, 2016 - Bottle #6 of 12. Best showing yet. Enjoyed over three nights. Very dark black purple color, only the beginnings of rim paling. Big nose of crushed violets, licorice, purple fruits, herbal/floral/green notes, minerals, dirt, wood/bramble/briar. Palate shows medium body with a lithe feel, classic Bazooka Joe bubblegum atop plummy red and purple quite ripe yet slender fruit - black cherries, loganberries, and an interesting linear almost yellow fruited aspect as well, like starfruit. Mouthwatering, silky, electric. Some dirt and gritty tannins barely noticeable under the fruit, this is not quite yet at its full peak. Maybe the tiniest bit of heat at the end of the long finish. Best at the end of the third evening, this still has plenty in the tank. Brilliant.

    March 29, 2016 - Not a fan of the vintage but must admit that this is characteristic Lapierre in only a slightly bigger frame. Ripe cherry but nothing resembling jam (unlike the Cuvée Marcel Lapierre, which is overdone for my taste). Dancing along the edge of fresh vs. ripe, but not overstepping. Spiced cherry confit on the palate. Really good and at a better spot than prior bottles opened since release.

    (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+
