    June 17, 2019 - Light red in color. Almost translucent. 13% ABV. For those who care about such things this is the ā€œSā€ version of the wine. Pretty nose of red fruits, orange zest, iron and damp forest floor. Medium body with nice acidity. Cranberry, minerals, bing cherries and earth on the palate. Aging well and absolutely delicious. Kermit Lynch has wrote that this wine can age for upwards of 20 years. Maybe so, but I will be drinking my last several bottles over the next 2-3 years.

    June 9, 2019 - From magnum. No more sweetness, more serious than during the first years but still delicious and a lot left.

    June 2, 2019 - Garnet. Light and earthy. Bitter cherry with a twist of citrus peel. No longer sweet or ripe feeling, strong salinity on the finish. Going strong at 10 years of age.

    April 9, 2019 - Pure red fruit and raspberries. Ever so slightly brett gives it more complexity and makes the wine even more interesting.

    (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+
