2009 Daniel Bouland Morgon "Corcelette" Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1060840

92 points from the Wine Advocate: "Bouland’s 2009 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes - from a single parcel near his winery - offers a striking combination of richness and lush texture with exuberant primary juiciness, elegance, buoyancy, and both animal and mineral complexity. Charred meat, musky peony perfume, toasted hickory; red and black raspberry tinged with nutmeg and cinnamon, and a suffusion of crushed stone, all add up to an amazing value and complex show that should be worth attending to for at least another 4-5 years."

The 2009 vintage seems to be amazing across Europe and in Beaujolais the wines are fantastic. The two Beaujolais wines from Daniel Bouland have continued to stick with me since we tasted them a few weeks ago. The Morgon is made from vines are that are from the lieu-dit Corcelette. This wine is decidedly darker and more concentrated than the Chiroubles and will age even longer. On the nose the black raspberry takes center stage with floral and herbs aromas in the background. Black raspberry, plum, mineral and floral flavors and aroma fill the palate and run through the long finish. The palate is more concentrated but with plenty of acidity and tannins to keep it from falling flat and flabby and help maintain an elegance to the wine. This is a lot of wine for the money and should age well and I would love to have this wine to try in 5 years.

My first non-Beaujolais Nouveau Beaujolais, and what a wonderful one it is. It's Cru Beaujolais for me from now on! Deep magenta hue with berry fruit, some floral notes and spice on the nose. I was also intrigued by a grilled game/meaty bouquet on the nose upon opening. Went away after 10 or so minutes, but it was wonderful while it lasted! On the palate, it was silky,and round with wonderful acidity. Taste wise it was black raspberries for me with spice and a touch of stoniness on the back end. Long finish. Wish I had more!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Gamay

- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Beaujolais

- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
