    January 26, 2019 - 4th Saturday Group (M/M thelostverse): Nonblind with dinner. Lovely elegant bouquet featuring strawberry and cherry with a subtle underlying minerality. The palate follows the bouquet. Medium+ finish with nice acidity. 89-90 pts.

    January 12, 2019 - Second bottle showed better than the first for some reason. Same dominant Gamay aroma, with cranberry and strawberry on a bed of slight earthy funk, along with some soft tannins. Just more generous and open this time around.

    December 8, 2018 - Popped and poured. Full, rich color. Leggy! Firm black cherry and tea notes. Piquant in the mouth, loaded with moderately tannic black cherry fruit. Love this. 5-12-16-8: 91/100.

Full Pull

  • By Paul Zitarelli
    Full Pull Cru Beaujolais, 4/18/2018

    (Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Cote du Py) Hello friends. Cru Beaujolais has always felt like a precious family secret—a delicious category of high-quality wines at impossibly low prices. Those in the know stock their cellars with Cru Beaujolais, which in a good vintage can age along the lines of high-end Burgundy, and hope that no one figures out that these wines could easily cost double or triple the price.

    It all goes back to the 14th century when the Duke of Burgundy, Philippe the Bold, outlawed the planting of Gamay in Burgundy because he thought it to be a “a very bad and disloyal plant.” (Whatever that means.) Gamay was banished to Beaujolais, where the granite soils helped it grow splendidly, and quickly, the region and grape became synonymous. Despite how well Gamay grows, bad reputations are hard to shake. Beaujolais still finds itself needing supporters, soapboxers, beaters of the drum—roles that we here at Full Pull are happy to play.
    Hot on the tail of wunderkind European vintage 2015 is the equally impressive 2016. It’s hard to believe, but 2016 is being similarly heralded, and in some places, it was a vintage that’s more representative of historical expectations. In a recent article for Vinous, Josh Raynolds writes “2016 Beaujolais are built along more classical lines, emphasizing lively, sharply delineated red fruit, floral and spice qualities and offering succulent early drinkability.” Today, we have one of the most impressive 2016 Beaujolais that’s been released.

    Jean-Marc Burgaud falls somewhere between the old school and new school timeline of Beaujolais—founded in 1989—but he is definitely one of the rising stars of the region. His vineyards, majority in Morgon, average 40 years old, planted along granite and schist soils. Morgon is a cru of Beaujolais; one of the special hillside growing regions that create intensely complex, compelling Gamay (especially in comparison to the flatlands used for Beaujolais Villages, straight Beaujolais, or Nouveau). Morgon is known for its intensely mineral soil, concentrated fruit, and ageability. Cote du Py is arguably the greatest hillside within Morgon. Its half a century old vines sit along a large southern-facing slope of layered blueschist. It’s generally thought to be the truest expression of Morgon—full of concentrated power and minerality.

    An elegant 13% alcohol, this wine leads with perfumed violets, dark earth, fruit (cherry and plum), and plenty of stony minerals. The palate is downright delicious in its vibrant fruit and spice. Buzzing with mouthwatering acidity, this wine immediately brings to mind pairing potentials: cornish game hens with apricot and rosemary, camembert with grainy mustard and figs, pappardelle with duck sugo. In the background, tannins slowly build, which never become overwhelming but hint at supreme ageability. This is a wine for today, tomorrow, and years from now.
