Domaine Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2014

90 Wine Advocate
90 Wine Spectator
92 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(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."

Chateau Thivin "Cuvee Zaccharie" Cote de Brouilly 2015

95 James Suckling
(2/2017) "Ripe and rich aromas of blackberries and blueberries. Tar undertones. Full-bodied, very structured and flavorful with lots of round tannins and a fruity finish. This is aged about 10 months in barrel of which about 5% is new. Needs a year or two more of bottle age before drinking but already very impressive."

Domaine Jean Foillard "Cote du Py" Morgon Beaujolais 2015

95 James Suckling
(2/2017) "Gorgeous aromas of stems and spices with crushed berries and beautiful florals. Coffee beans and charcoal, too. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and lovely caressing fruit. Very long and delicious. Made from organic grapes. Very drinkable now but better in a year or two."

Domaine Jean Foillard "Cuvee Corcelette" Morgon 2015

93 James Suckling
(2/2017) "Subtle and earthy with perfumed plum and cherry aromas that follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a lovely finish. Subtle center palate of fruit here. Beautiful balance. From one of the the light climats in Morgon. Made from organic grapes. Drink now."

Guy Breton Regnie 2014

91 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(8/2016) "Brilliant ruby. Mineral-tinged aromas of black raspberry, cherry and lavender pastille, along with a hint of white pepper in the background. Lithe and appealingly sweet, offering dark berry and spicecake flavors lifted by juicy acidity. Shows very good clarity and minerally cut on the finish, which is framed by sneaky, harmonious tannins."

Domaine Lapalu "Vieilles Vignes" Brouilly 2014

92 Wine Advocate
(6/2015) "The 2014 Brouilly Cuvee Vieilles Vignes, which undergoes exactly the same vinification as the Beaujolais Villages, has a wonderful nose of blackberry, briary wild hedgerow and hints of dried violet petals. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit mixed with licorice on the entry. There are fine tannins underpinning this Brouily, and though it feels a little clammed up on the finish so close to bottling, it is very elegant and composed. Drink: 2015 - 2025"

C.G. Paris "Vieilles Vignes" Chiroubles 2014

93 Vinous, Josh Raynolds
(8/2016) "Ruby-red. An explosively perfumed, complex bouquet evokes mineral-accented red berries, potpourri and Asian spices. Concentrated yet lithe, showing excellent clarity and lift to the raspberry liqueur and bitter cherry flavors, which are given spine by juicy acidity. Shows impressive power and vivacity on the strikingly long, seamless finish, which is framed by fine-grained, harmonious tannins. Drink: 2018 - 2023."

Domaine Jean Foillard "Cuvee Corcelette" Morgon 2013

New low price! Regular Vin Chicago retail - $33.99!
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."

Justin Dutraive Beaujolais Village 2015

91 Our Score
(4/2017) Justin is the son of legendary Beaujolais producer Jean-Louis Dutraive. 2015 marks Justin's first solo vintage, and despite the challenges of the vintage, managed to produce something rather amazing. Though he is young, he has a truly impressive resume under his belt, not only from working with his father but also the likes of Jean Foillard and others. The wine was fermented in a globe shaped vessel, think an egg fermenter taken to the next level! This vessel adds lots of texture without cumbersome weight, resulting in a plush mouth feel with plenty of mouthwatering red fruits and earth tones. "Les Bullands" is a big, broad shoulder wine, typical in the context of 2015s. It is powerful with plenty of gripy tannins, though these melt considerably with air. This is a great first showing from a very talented young man. We can't wait to see what he does next!
