    February 16, 2017 - Very ripey at opening, and not appealing. Way much better next day with lifting aromatics. Take time to let this breathe !

    February 13, 2017 - Delicious vibrant raspberry, floral, and mineral notes on the nose and savory palate with moderate finish. Drinking beautifully!

    January 25, 2017 - Great drinking. I'd drink in the next couple years, that's no knock on this wine.

    January 1, 2017 - Ringing It Out, Ringing It In-Three Days of New Year's Celebration; 12/31/2016-1/2/2017 (San Francisco): Magnum. Light red. Clean, light red fruit with a soil and herbal background. Light, very supple, and vinous on the palate with none of the sense of over-concentration or slight heaviness that some bottles suggested early on. Lovely from the get go, and it kept giving more for the entire 2 hour life of the bottle with the meal. I was surprised to see that this was the first time I'd tasted this in 2 years, and it is doing just fine, thank you.

    December 19, 2016 - Barnyard funk on the nose just beautiful and borrows from a red burgundy. Can I describe a beaujolais as a long finish? The initial attack is light, but mid and lasting long palate just keeps bringing back unsweetened black cherry. This gamay has it all and is just singing and light on its feet. Acids in check and could give this years and years of life. Lovely.

    (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+
