    September 7, 2019 - Much better than my last bottle. Bright red fruit with a lot of mineral and earth behind it, a lot of acidity that took over on the finish.

    May 14, 2019 - Tasted dead and over the hill, tossed most of it. Did not pick up on any obvious flaw.

    April 8, 2019 - Remarkably deep. Nose of dried strawberries and earth. Integrated palate. Firm enough tannin to finish cleanly. Great effort.

    February 4, 2019 - My first well aged Morgon: Very barnyard mushroomy foresty floor on the nose and earthy yet bright cherry flavors. Very beautiful wine, medium body and balanced finish on this Gammay. I now understand the attractiveness of well made gammay. This was on 09, drank early 19, so 10 years seems right. Could go longer too, but possibly more fruit forward a few years ago.

    December 8, 2018 - Classically Burgaud, with rather hard tannins, smoky fruit and a minty edge. Twenty four hours of air softened it up a bit, bringing a measure of pleasure, but dang this is tough stuff. Who knows if it will ever truly open up.

    (COTE DE PY Jean-Marc Burgaud) 2009 Dear Friends, In a world of vinous potholes, a sure thing is not easy to come by. With that statement as a backdrop, the tandem below receives one of my highest recommendations of the year. Where the 2008s from Burgaud were reference, varietal wines, the 2009s are a freak-show of terroir, depth and Gamay-laced rock with super-charged purple molecules swimming around a nuclear core. If that doesn’t nudge you over the edge - to take the plunge into Jean-Marc Burgaud’s mineral slathered 2009 world, allow me to push you off the cliff (in a polite way of course)... I'm not sure how to properly explain this set of 2009s but I can tell you that it took 3-4 days to remove the purple from my teeth after tasting them. If you are looking for intellectual challenge as well as fruit purity and palate pleasure, Jean-Marc Burgaud has given us all of the above with the extra benefit of exemplary value and ageing capacity. Both the 2009 Thulon and Cote de Py simply feel and taste real – they represent what is still honest in the world of wine and they do so with granite-laced and studious panache. The Cote de Py will age for years and the Thulon, usually a young drinker, is so well-endowed in the vintage that it has aspirations of medium term cellaring as well. While this may seem like a simple statement, it is important to note that this is the very best Burgaud can put on the table and he is doing so for the least amount of currency in his pocket. Call it a breath of fresh air or just plain common sense, but these are kingly wines that anyone in the kingdom can afford. They are meant for a connoisseur’s communal table where the cream will rise to the top – what’s in the bottle does not lie and it does not have time for trickery – it jumps from the glass with a starry-eyed and wide brushstroke of a vintage that is a legend in the making. I wish we had significant quantities of each but we do not – I'm not the only one to recognize the 2009 vintage in Beaujolais and its wine geek “come hither” appeal... VERY HIGHLY RECCOMMEDED for crazy price/value and purple-stained reflection of a one-off vintage that makes it difficult to draw comparisons. This parcel is directly from the winery cellar with perfect provenance: 2009 Jean-Marc Burgaud Beaujolais Village “Chateau de Thulon” - (although this can be thoroughly enjoyed now for its exclamation point Gamay fun-fest drenched in granite, it will be even better in 2-3 years) 2009 Jean-Marc Burgaud Beaujolais Morgon - Cote de Py - (for the long term – like solid black, tannic rock – very serious wine from a superlative growing season) Please give us your maximum number up to 24/person of the Chateau de Thulon and 12/person of the Cote de Py and we will allocate accordingly To order: niki@garagistewine.com This parcel is set to depart the cave – it will arrive in the late summer (please check OARS for local pick up after Labor Day). It will ship during the Fall shipping season. Out of state orders will be held for free under ideal storage conditions (56 degrees/70%humidity) until shipping is possible.
