    April 14, 2022 - Unsulfured cuvée. Light red/garnet. Initial aromas of slight funkiness, menthol, and red fruit pretty quickly got overtaken by the brett. Light weight, tangy cherry, and a late chocolate note. First glass was pleasant, but then it fell apart, overcome by the dirty elements.

    January 21, 2022 - Understated and elegant nose - black cherry and cherry, some violets a little bubblegum and savory, herbal green. Bit of stones. shows some sweeter candied strawberry with time. With a bit of air the nose really comes together as the fruit and savory elements create a wonderful near crystalline alloy. Palate is lithe and pure and shows silky red and blue fruits, with some spice, a nice savory horsey element comes out in the middle palate and carries through to the long and precise finish - lots of funk and tart fruits, minerals. This is reference point Bojo. Nose - 5.5/6, Palate - 5.5/6, Finish - 5/6, Je ne Sais Quoi - 1.5/2 = 17.5/20.

    November 26, 2021 - This bottle was in pretty good shape. Very light and delicate, but gained a little bit of weight by the last glass (about 2 hours). Not a revelation, but very good with Thanksgiving turkey leftovers. Seemed to lack a little bit of energy, but I love the earthy fruit core of this cuvee. If scoring 88 - 89.

    November 25, 2021 - Thanksgiving Dinner (Los Gatos, California): A magnum of this cuvée that was lightly sulfured. Dull light red. Sinuous aromas of red fruit and soil. Again great soil/fruit balance in the mouth. Light weight Burgundian feel. Both strawberry and ripe cherry fruit with a squirt of blood orange. Fine earth and acidity. Juicy but discrete-a real winner.

    (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+
