2013 Jean-Michel Dupre "1935" Morgon

SKU #1273899 90 points Vinous

 Bright magenta. Potent dark berry, cherry pit and licorice scents, along with hints of musky herbs and smoky minerals. Juicy and sharply focused, offering bitter cherry and cassis flavors that slowly become sweeter with air. Shows very good depth and structure and finishes with building tannins, an echo of sappy dark berries and very good, chewy persistence. (JR)  (7/2016)

What a beautiful bright and lifted Gamay for on $15. With plenty of fruit and earth, this Morgon will please any guest with flavors of crunchy cranberry and ripe cherry, next to flavors of pine-cone, cured meat and graphite.

A beautiful wine, the 2013 Jean Michel Dupre "1935 Morgon" greatly benefits from a little extra time in bottle. Pretty floral notes as well as freshly picked strawberries flow seamlessly to a palate full of tart cherry and fresh berry flavors. A racy, delicious Morgon.

This a single vineyard wine that was planted in 1935 (obviously). The wine shows lots of classic Gamay flavors of black currant, violets and raspberry. Fairly substantial, this wine should actually age quite well over the next five years and develop some nice complexity.

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.
