Desvignes Morgon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Made and matured in large old oak, the Javernières is the superiorDesvignes cuvée, its Gamay vines located on some of the steepest oldschist slopes of the Côte Du Puy in Beaujolais. The wine has all theweight associated with this, the most powerful of the Crus Beaujolais, and yetloses none of the ethereal red fruit elegance for which top quality Gamay is sowell-known.

Still closed, berry and Christmas spice. Double decanted and waited 12 hours.

My goal for May has been to only drink Beaujolais - something I don't drink enough of to begin with. It's taking me some time to get used to Gamay. The juicy fruit and the floral nose are fascinating when you haven't had it in a while. This Morgon has a puzzling nose with notes of violet, tiny bits of menthol, and something I can't put a finger on... peach? peach snapple iced-tea? Puzzling. The color is darker than the Villages example I had earlier and skews more towards proper red than the almost purple-ish of the Village one. On the palate, good acidity, medium amount of tannins, and medium sized body. The finish is interesting as the wine seems to evolve quite a bit as it leaves the mouth. Flavors on the palate? Very similar to the nose and just as puzzling. This wine is like those high concept dishes in restaurants that taste nothing like they look.

Morgon is considered one of the most age-worthy of the Cru Beaujolais, while the area of Javernieres is considered to be the grand cru of Morgon. Louis Devignes has created a perfumed, delicate wine with amazing underlying structure that expresses notes of raspberry and black cherry in its youth, and with time, will show more cocoa and coffee notes.
