Daniel Bouland Morgon 2008
Daniel Bouland, a top producer in the commune of Morgon, brings us another exceptional Cru Beaujolais from Côtes de Brouilly. Feminine and flirty, with beautiful crushed raspberry fruit and fresh flower aromas, this is bright, supple, unfiltered, and very hedonistic. So versatile, food-friendly, and altogether irresistible. Buy this by the case - take one sip and you'll know why!
Beautifully perfumed bouquet of blueberry, blackberry and violets with a touch of smoke on the nose. Textured and subtle this offering sails across the palate with layers of blue fruit, chalk, salt and just a dash of citrus culminating in a persistent and meaty finish. As satisfying as this cuvee presently is it is still quite young in the bottle and needs additional aging to properly unlock the promise which is obviously here. Throw it in the cellar and try back in 5-9 years. 92.
External Reviews for Daniel Bouland Morgon
One of the 10 Crus of the Beaujolais region, Morgon is noted for producing wines with darker, more powerful fruit profiles than are typical of the Gamay grape. This one shows excellent character with a rustic, earthy edge that pairs well with the charcuterie (sausages, hams, country pâtés) so widely enjoyed in the wine's region of origin – not to mention here in NYC.
