Domaine des Gaudets 2019 Morgon Côte du Py Cru Beaujolais
Press 93 JS "Intense violet and wet-earth nose give this impressive Morgon plenty of personality and it's still very young. With this kind of structure, balance and the long, mineral and spicy finish, it should age very well. Drink or hold"
90WE "This wine is structured, as befits a bottling from this iconic, granite-based vineyard. With firm tannins partnering the black-cherry fruit, the wine has good potential"
"Cru Beaujolais is often the go-to for sommeliers and wine professionals, and for good reason. Yes, it’s Gamay, but it’s nothing like the bubblegum fruit bombs of Beaujolais Nouveau that you may have tasted in the past.
This is Beaujolais all grown up. Just south of Burgundy with ten Crus to explore, each offers its own personality and refinement. The Crus from north to south are Saint-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-a-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Régnié, Brouilly and Côtes de Brouilly.
All of these regions produce Gamay with structure, and can be cellared for many years. That being said, this more serious version of Gamay is still fruit forward, easy to drink and fun, but offers a more sophisticated and intriguing take on the grape" WE
