    July 27, 2020 - Notes écrites plusieurs jours après la dégustation.
    Nez ouvert, fruits rouges, framboise écrasée.
    En bouche, de la matière à souhait pour du gamay (...) petits fruits sauvages mûres, noix de grenoble, champignon de paris, Tanins fins, bonne persistance. Le vin est vraissemblablement à son apogée. Il a bien tenu dans des conditions de cave parfois déficientes. Le capuchon de cire a peut-être contribué ?!...

    July 16, 2020 - Medium expressive nose displaying ripe concentrated red fruit with a hint of black, raspberry preserve, strawberry jam, black cherry, licorice, animal, lightly smoked meat and earth. There is noticeable sous bois. Nicely integrated palate, concentrated ripe red fruit, rich yet harmonious, good acidity and mineral, and a long ripe black fruit driven finish with animal and sous bois at the end. It has been fascinating to follow since release. This is even more Burgundian and shows more pronounced sous bois than the Feb, 2019 bottle. Love to try this in another decade, as there is enough fruit.

    July 15, 2020 - An N bottle, I waited too long -- the fruit has faded but not really been replaced by anything better. Not bad, just tired.

    June 22, 2020 - Lovely nose of cherries, dark berries, and herbs. Tart berries, nice acidity, and good structure on the palate. Nice finish. I liked this a bit better than the last bottle I had.

    June 19, 2020 - Un peu discret et fatigué à l'ouverture. Notes de hummus et de fleurs séchés. Après quelques heures le vin s'ouvre sur un jolie fruit mure. (Cerise) notes de torréfaction café. Bouche ronde et fondue. Minéralité et finale sapide. Délicieux jusqu'à la dernière goûte !

    (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+
