2014 Domaine Damien Coquelet Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes

SKU #1274423 93 points Vinous

 Dark ruby. Intense, mineral-laced dark berry and cherry liqueur aromas are complicated by hints of peppery spices and rhubarb. Vibrant and precise on the palate, offering nervy blackcurrant and bitter cherry flavors that gain depth and sweetness on the back half. Shows outstanding clarity and lift on a very long, sappy finish that's given shape and gentle grip by smooth, even tannins. (JR)  (8/2016)

91 points John Gilman

 The 2014 Morgon 'Côte du Py' from Damien Coquelet is a superb example of the vintage, showing some of the high toned leafy elements of 2014, but floating over beautifully pure red fruit and fine soil elements. The bouquet jumps from the glass in a blend of cherries, quince, a touch of pepper, granite soil nuances, woodsmoke, fresh herbs and a bit of bonfire in the upper register. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, tangy and very transparent, with a fine core, moderate tannins and a long, focused and youthful finish. This has a touch of the youthful herbacité of the vintage, but with a bit of bottle age, this is going to be just lovely. (Drink between 2019-2045) 91+  (7/2016)

Additional Information:



- 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.


- 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.
