Thevenet Morgon 2007

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Regnie is the youngest Cru of Beaujolais, dating from 1988 but is part of the historic home of Beaujolais. This has superb aromatics with balsamic, candlewax tones almost verging on eucalyptus with a roast meaty edge and layers of intense and complex violet pastille and wild berry fruits. This smells like old vines. This has big weight but is not weighty do to the incredible balance and precision that makes for lovely depth of fruit with a raspberry, slight roasted strawberry tone yet crystal clear transparency. I love the quality of the tannins here, they are soft and like flannel, mouthfilling. A nice mineral wash clenses the palate and leads to a long finish that ends with a wild strawberry flourish. This is simply great Beaujolais! 94pts

Wet wool notes on the nose break into an acidic wine with some musty flavors, mushroom and a delicate earthiness. Good acidity and black cherry fruit add complexity. Finishes on strong iron and iodine.

Flowers dominate. Some berries are shining through though. Some acid on the mouth. Not too shabby.
