2015 Domaine Marcel Lapierre "Cuvée Camille" Morgon

SKU #1249820 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2015 Morgon Cuvée Camille, which since its debut in 2013 comes from a lieu-diet in Côte du Py on granite soils, has a very expressive bouquet with wild strawberry and raspberry scents, a hint of clove in the background, perhaps even fennel. The palate is laden with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, a pinch of sea salt and displaying beautiful delineation and harmony on the finish. What a gorgeous Morgon - one that is going to give several years of pleasure. It will be bottled without filtration the day after my visit. (NM)  (8/2016)

94 points Vinous

 Lurid ruby. Intense red berry liqueur, floral pastille and smoky aromas, along with hints of succulent herbs and Asian spices. Appealingly sweet and penetrating, offering concentrated, sharply focused black raspberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of spicecake. Silky, slow-building tannins give shape to the fruit-driven finish, which lingers with impressive persistence and building sweetness. (JR)  (1/2017)

K&L Notes

Old vines with naturally low yields. Organic farming used, manually harvested, as late as possible to achieve maximum ripeness, rigorous sorting of the grapes. Indigenous yeasts only during whole-cluster fermentation that lasts for ten to twenty days. Semi-carbonic maceration. Wines aged on fine lees in old Burgundy barrels, then bottled without filtering.

- 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.

- 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.
