Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2015 3.0 LT

93 Wine Advocate
(8/30/2016) "The 2015 Morgon has a clean and vibrant bouquet with perfumed dark cherries, redcurrant, a touch of gravel and touches of rose petal. The palate is nicely structured, brimming over with energy. The acidity is very well judged, quite sturdy as Morgon should be, no hard edges here but just the background "hum" of tension from start to finish. This is just a superb Morgon from Mathieu and Camille Lapierre."

Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2014

(8/2016) "Opaque ruby. Ripe red fruit and floral scents are sharpened by a peppery nuance. Seamless and a touch jammy, offering primary raspberry and cherry flavors that tighten up and become spicier as the wine opens up. Appealingly sweet and supple on the nicely persistent finish, which is given gentle grip by soft, even tannins."

Jules Desjourneys "L'Interdit" Vin de France MMVIII 2008

93 Our Score
93 Wine Advocate
(8/2011) "The wine that will be known as 2008 Desjourneys is none other than Duperray's 2008 Fleurie - combining Chapelle des Bois and Les Moriers - that was refused appellation and so is officially, merely, "vin de France." Believe me, this is "vin de France" in the same sense that Debussy signed many of his late masterpieces "musicien francais." The high-toned floral, herbal, and fruit distillate esters that memorably marked the Chapelle des Bois from cask as well as the black tea-tinged and more bittersweetly herbal and concentrated dark berries of the original Les Moriers, have been preserved in this marriage - in fact, after recovering from my chagrin at this wine's having been denied its rightful appellation, I am now entirely reconciled to the two sites having been blended, inasmuch as the whole seems, remarkably, even greater than the sum of its already profoundly delicious parts! This finishes with mouthwatering salinity and a tenacious, almost Gewurztraminer-like meld of brown spices concentrated floral and herbal essences. I would anticipate it being worth following for half a dozen years, but on no account should it be missed earlier-on."

Domaine Jean Foillard "Cuvee Corcelette" Morgon 2013

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(7/2016) "Limpid violet. Bright, mineral-accented red and dark berry aromas show excellent clarity and pick up deeper cherry pit and licorice qualities as the wine opens up. Juicy and concentrated, offering lively bitter cherry and black raspberry flavors given spine and focus and a smoky mineral component. Powerful yet graceful, featuring a suave, floral-tinged and gently tannic finish that lingers with strong tenacity. Drinking window: 2017 - 2022."

Domaine Jean-Paul Dubost Moulin-a-Vent 2011

91+ Our Score
(2/2016) Wow! This cru Beaujolais, from Moulin a Vent, is produced by the 7th generation wine grower Jean-Paul Dubost. Passionate about the quality of the fruit, the estate has been nurturing their vineyards using biodynamic farming since 2005. The wine is fermented with natural yeasts and made without sulfur or other additions, before spending 20 months in 500 liter oak barrels. Beautifully pure and clean aromatics burst from the glass, showcasing fresh strawberries, cherry and raspberry fruit complimented by gorgeous undertones of lavender and fresh violets. The palate is light, bright and balanced, as the flavors build and earthy notes of granite chime in on the finish. A stunning example of Gamay's full potential.

Guy Breton Regnie 2013

92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
90 Wine Advocate
(6/2014) "The 2013 Regnie comes from 35- and 100-year-old vines on granite and sand soils. It has a sedate bouquet that lets you come to it, rather than it leaping out of the glass at you. The palate is fleshy and ripe on the entry with succulent wild strawberry and cranberry fruit, well-judged acidity and surprising density on the finish for a Regnie. There is an engaging focus here, although it will repay a couple of years in the cellar. Drink 2016-2022."

Domaine Robert Denogent "Cuvee Jules Chauvet" Beaujolais Villages 2013

93 Our Score
89 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(2/2015) "(made with whole clusters, no sulfur, no fining and no filtration): Light, bright red. Earth- and pepper-accented redcurrant and strawberry aromas, with hints of rhubarb and musky herbs and faint volatility. Tangy and sharply focused on the palate, offering bitter cherry and slightly tart red fruits that gain sweetness with air. Finishes taut and spicy, with good cut and no obvious tannins. Distinctly old school and on the raw side, but not without its charms, especially if you're a fan of funky wines. The fruit for this wine is sourced from a vineyard that's leased from the family of the legendary Jules Chauvet, an enology professor and writer whose work was the inspiration for Marcel Lapierre, Jean Thévenet, Jean Foillard, Guy Breton and a host of other vignerons in Beaujolais and, now, across the globe. His influence is practically immeasurable, in fact, as he is a demigod of the natural wine movement."

Jean-Paul Thevenet "Vieilles Vignes" Morgon 2013

93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(12/2014) "Vivid ruby. Sexy, highly perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry and candied rose, with white pepper, allspice and blood orange notes adding complexity. Silky, seamless and fine-grained, offering lively, appealingly sweet red fruit flavors and a touch of spicecake. Shows excellent energy and focus on the mineral-driven finish, which displays a repeating raspberry note and even tannins. This wine is made from fruit grown in two different parcels, one planted in the late 1960s and the other over 110 years ago."

(2/2015) "Youthful violet color. Displays vibrant dark berry and peppery spice aromas, along with a hint of musky herbs. Sweet and incisive on the palate, offering lively blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Supple tannins give shape to the finish, which hangs on with noteworthy persistence and building sweetness. Drinking window 2016 - 2023"

Domaine Paul-Henri Thillardon "Les Carrieres" Chenas 2012

90 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
91 Our Score
(2/2012) Not sure we've ever tasted a Chenas with this much flavor of black rock, deep, velvety red cherry fruit and tense structure. Chenas is the smallest of the ten Beaujolais Crus, and this particular bottling is lovely. Drink now and over the next 4-5 years.
