Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes 2017

External Review by Wine Gems @ Perriello's:

Beaujolais, FranceWine Advocate 96 points!Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes is a gorgeous expression of Gamay from the excellent 2017 vintage in Beaujolais. Daniel Bouland is a great producer of old-fashioned Morgon. From less than 7 hectares of old vines in the Douby, Cte de Py, and Delys, lieux of Morgon, plus small parcels in Chiroubles and Cote de Brouilly, he makes wines that can age 20 years, and are comparable to fine Cte de Nuits Burgundies. His Corcellette Morgon vineyard is 60-75 year-old vines. De Lys (between Corcellette and Ville Morgon) was planted in 1926. In 2014 he acquired another old-vines parcel - Bellevue, on schiste and granite. All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters in order to extract all the organoleptic qualities and bottled unfiltered.Corcelette is Daniel's classic Morgon, vines 60-70 years, with a combination of part of the cuve being aged in tank and part in 2000 Liter Rousseau foudre. Fine, silky and long, from the sable soil."The 2017 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes (4) is brilliant, unfurling in the glass with notes of wild plums, cherries and cassis, complemented by savory aromas of grilled meat and loamy soil. On the palate, it's full-bodied, deep and layered, with a slightly tauter, more tensile profile than the Corcelette that matured in foudre #7, as well as marginally more concentration. While the differences between the two bottlings aren't sufficient to merit a divergence of scores, #7 is the purist's choice and seemingly the best-adapted to sustained bottle age: it was the bottling I purchased for my own cellar."-William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 94 points!Enjoy Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes over the next 15-20 years with roast chicken, grilled salmon, roast pork, pasta and Thanksgiving turkey.

The 2013 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes, from vines located just a stone’s throw from the winery on sandy soils and matured in foudres, has a more endearing and engaging bouquet compared to the Côte de Brouilly, with lively cranberry and wild strawberry scents intermingling with light, dried tobacco notes. The palate is medium-bodied with light but firm tannin that give the fruit sufficient backbone. There is a commendable precision to this Morgon with delineation and composure toward the finish. This should age nicely over several years.

Vivid ruby. A heady, seductively perfumed bouquet evokes red fruit preserves, Asian spices and rose oil, with white pepper and mineral nuances adding complexity. Sappy, pure and focused on the palate, offering gently sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors and a hint of blood orange. Clings with excellent tenacity on the finish, which features silky tannins and echoing floral character.

Brilliant ruby. Assertive aromas of red fruit, cherry skin, floral oils and smoky minerals. Sappy and primary on the palate, offering intense raspberry and bitter cherry flavors and a touch of blood orange. Shows impressive depth of flavor with no undue weight. Finishes lithe and spicy, with superb tenacity and alluring sweetness.

Balanced and fresh, this subtle red offers raspberry, peach, dried herb and floral notes. Lightly chewy tannins show on the mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2015.

Bouland’s 2011 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes displays dark berry and peat aromas of surprising discretion considering the intensity of juicy black raspberry fruit, the smoky pungency, and the meaty, subtly gamy animal dimension delivered on its rich palate. A hint of cardamom adds interest to an already multi-faceted, not to mention prolonged, finish. Expect this to perform well through at least 2017. (Game, brown spice, and alkaline elements along with confitured dark berries have come to the fore in the 2009 Corcelette, which like Bouland’s other wines from that very ripe vintage has preserved admirable primary juiciness.)

Boulandandrsquo;s 2010 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes offers scents of violet, wisteria, fresh cherry, red currant, and smoked meat. Sweetly-ripe yet vivacious fruit informs a silken-textured palate, while smokiness and salinity lend invigoration to a purely-persistent, downright vibrant finish. Look for 4andndash;6 years of satisfaction. (A bottle open overnight was surprisingly unevolved.)
