Marcel Lapierre Cuvée Marcel Lapierre Morgon Gamay 2018

$58

Wines will arrive in Late January 2020. Cuvandeacute;e Marcel is meant to be the crowning achievement of this legendary estate each vintage and the 2018 delivers in spades. The wine is outstanding, relaying all the depth and power of the very best of Morgon. The nose is wildly aromatic, with swirls of ripe berries, musky floral notes, black tea, pepper spice, and mint. The palate has chewy tannin for Gamay with the hallmark acidity we've seen in Beaujolais from this vintage shot through with the minerality typical of Lapierre. This wine is impeccably balanced and simply one of the best bottles we've encountered from this special vintage. 5-10 years in the cellar will certainly allow this wine to blossom into something extraordinary, though it is masterfully composed already.andnbsp;

2018 vintage- delicious from the get go and textured enough to hold up to ribeye steak. Touch of brett complemented the meat. Delicious.

This is the Sans soufre version. Pure red and purple fruits. Touch of earth and bramble rounding things out. Lovely open knit style but all intentional. Delicious. What a wine. Can’t wait to have it again. A benchmark.

17.5 ideal type of Morgon. Fresh, terrific red fruit, good length, takes you to your favourite bar a vins, with zinc. Must drink cool.
