Gamay focus 27: Lapierre Morgon 2009

lapierre morgon

I was given this wine to taste blind. It’s always interesting to try things without any clue what they are. I really liked it immediately, but it also tasted a tiny bit natural, with some (but not excessive) volatile acidity and a slight savoury spiciness. But these elements integrate beautifully into the whole of the wine, and it’s drinking beautifully now at age 8.

Lapierre Morgon 2009 Beaujolais, France
This is the version that has some SO2 added (labelled ‘S’ on the back label). Wonderfully detailed with a warm spicy, savoury character. Fine herbs with some sweet tea leaf notes. There’s a warmth at the end of the palate. So textural, complex and savoury with some pepper and herbs as well as some texture. Smoky, meaty cherry and berry fruits with lovely texture. There’s a bit of lift here but also lovely harmony and beauty. 94/100
