    February 16, 2020 - Find the Pinot in the Gamay: Having had so much Lapierre I recognized this wine straight away. Mint and smoke. Strong mineral flavors, juicy dark fruits, and fresh all the way through.

    December 30, 2019 - My last of 14. This bottle showed fresh and well. On the nose, fresh red fruit. In the mouth, great balance of fruit and acid. Excellent.

    December 28, 2019 - Muted and stewed dark fruit. Not super enjoyable. Nice earth and body, however.

    December 24, 2019 - Magnum. Muddy light ruby. Terrific blend of soft red berries, a bit of herb, and a lovely twist of orange peel. Supple, clean, and very vinous.

    (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+
