Daniel BoulandMorgon “Corcelette Vieilles Vignes Cailloux” 2020 Magnum
“The 2020 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes Cailloux is showing beautifully, bursting with aromas of black cherries, raspberries, violets and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with lively acids and fine, youthfully chalky tannins, it’s one of the most dynamic wines in the range this year.” – William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
Offering up inviting aromas of blackberries, cassis and cherries mingled with hints of licorice and grilled meats, the 2018 Chiroubles is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and charming, with a generous core of lively fruit, tangy acids and fine, powdery tannin. This characterful, classically proportioned Chiroubles is a great success.
“A more deeply pitched and slightly riper nose blends notes of poached plum, warm earth and more prominent pepper nuances. There is better density to the beautifully textured medium-bodied flavors thanks to the abundance of dry extract buffering the firm tannic spine shaping the youthfully austere, sappy and seriously long finale. This is excellent and absolutely worth your interest.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound
“Domaine Lafarge-Vial Fleurie “Clos Vernay” 2019 , Here there is more earth influence on the ripe and beautifully layered aromas of spice, violet, and plum. The gorgeously textured, refined and even more mineral-driven flavors display superb length on the equally complex finale. This is outstanding and one to strongly consider.”– Allen Meadows, Burghound
