"Made in the Methode Champenoise by Gilles Gelin from Domaine des Nugues in Beaujolais. The fruit comes off of the Cru’s of Morgon and Fleurie as well as Beaujolais Village designated vineyards. The wine is deep red with a gorgeous pink mousse and fine beads at 9% alc by vol. Made By G is
Wine Advocate 91 "The 2014 Fleurie les Moriers has a wonderful, floral bouquet with wilted rose petals and violets infusing the pure red berry fruit that is well defined and gains intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, good weight in the mouth and a gradual build
Wine Enthusiast 94 "The Cote du Py, one of the best cru vineyard sites in Beaujolais, is on the slope of a 3,000-foot extinct volcano. It produces structured wines that can age well. Stephane Aviron brought out the quality of Py with a wine that is powerful, ripe and dense with considerable tannic
"Since the early 19th Century the patients of the Hospices in Romanèche-Thorins bequeathed sections of vineyards to the hospital, as compensation for their care. Located at the southern tip of Burgundy, the vineyards have accumulated to form an estate of more than 6 hectares. Beginning with the 1926
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2015 Julienas Tradition, which underwent a 10- to 12-day semi-carbonic maceration, has a well defined, dark cherry and raspberry-scented bouquet with subtle undergrowth notes developing with aeration. The palate is very well balanced with supple tannin, the acidity well
Vinous Media 90 “Deep magenta. Spice-accented red and blue fruit and floral pastille scents, along with suggestions of allspice and orange zest. Sweet and nervy on the palate, offering juicy black raspberry, boysenberry and blood orange flavors that put on weight with air. Shows very good energy
Wine Advocate 93 "I might have under-estimated the 2014 Côte de Brouilly when I tasted a barrel sample last year. Here, it is a little more backward on the nose compared directly with the Brouilly Reverdon, although there are some lovely strawberry, cranberry and subtle marine scents to discern.
Vinous Media 90 "Vivid ruby-red. Primary red and dark berries on the nose, along with hints of pungent flowers and minerals. Sappy, spice-tinged blackberry and bitter cherry flavors stretch out and become sweeter and deeper as the wine opens up. Rich but vibrant in style, finishing very long and
John Gilman 93 "The 2015 Régnié from Antoine Sunier is really quite a stunning example of the vintage. The ripeness here is 13.5 percent, which makes it fairly moderate by the heady standards of 2015 and the wine offers up lovely purity and sappiness on both the nose and palate, without straying
Vinous Media 92 "Youthfully lurid ruby. Sexy, high-pitched aromas of red and dark berries and floral oils. Spicy, penetrating and emphatically fruity, offering intense, mineral-laced raspberry and cherry flavors along with notes of rose pastille and allspice. Closes silky and very long, with
Made by the son of celebrity Beaujolais winemaker, Marcel Lapierre, who had murals painted for him around Paris upon his passing. The wine, primarily Gamay from Morgon, is pure fun, fresh, juicy, refreshing and joyous. This wine is perfect anytime.
"The Estate of Hospices Civils de Lyon was created from donations over centuries, specifically during the 1880-1920 period. The total profits generated by this estate go to improving the accommodation of patients in the hospital. Since the 1994 harvest, Collin Bourisset is the exclusive distributor
Wine Enthusiast 92 "Produced from 45-year-old vines, this is a fruity ripe wine. It has concentration and some firm tannins as well a generous black-fruit character. The wine's acidity and structure will allow it to age another year, so drink from late 2017." Wine Advocate 90 "The 2015
Wine Advocate 91-92 "Having enjoyed (to the extent that’s the right word) a different brand mix of slightly younger barriques than its Reserve and Javernieres siblings, Burgaud’s 2011 Morgon Cote de Py James – sourced from the summit of the Cote de Py – happily manages to express some of the more
The Javernieres is produced from some wines from old vines that are matured in oak barrels over several months to enhance the tannin. The maturing tradition of great Burgundy wines is found in this "vin de grande garde".
"This is a wine to keep; its character resulting from the soil composition (The cote du Py hillside near the tiny village of Morgon).This is the most typical wine of this appellation, thanks to its rich soil of blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. The Morgon « Côte du Py » is full
" Tradition runs deep in the family, but each generation has also managed to add something new, including increasing the property. Strong advocates of the lutte raisonne approach to vineyard work, they tend their vines without the use of any chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. The wines are not
A View from the Cellar 93+ "Domaine des Billards is one of my absolute favorite wines in all of Beaujolais, as it ages impeccably well and is always as good as the growing conditions of the particular season will allow. The 2014 is not yet released here in the states, but a sample was air-freighted
"In Villié-Morgon and Beaujolais, winegrowers still speak of Jules Chauvet, a chemist and negociant who was one of the pioneers of what is loosely known nowadays as the natural wine movement: painstaking work in the field and during the harvest to pick only healthy grapes, natural fermentations, no
John Gilman 93 "Marcel Lapierre passed away after the 2010 vintage, leaving behind an impressive legacy of great wines that transformed a region. His son, Mathieu Lapierre had worked alongside Marcel for a few years before his passing and the 2011 vintage, which is Mathieu’s first on his own, is
A View from the Cellar 93 "The 2014 Morgon from Kevin Descombes is a lovely example of its appellation, with a fine synthesis of the spiciness so often found in his father’s wines and a lovely underpinning of soil and structure that speaks warmly of the 2014 vintage. The nose is deep and first
Vinous Media 92 "Youthful violet color. Displays vibrant dark berry and peppery spice aromas, along with a hint of musky herbs. Sweet and incisive on the palate, offering lively blackberry and boysenberry flavors and a touch of bitter chocolate. Supple tannins give shape to the finish, which hangs
John Gilman 93+ "The 2015 Chiroubles from Damien Coquelet is a fine, fine follow-up to his beautiful 2014 version. The lovely and sappy nose shows just a whisper of baked fruit elements in its mélange of black cherries, pomegranate, gamebird, violets, lovely soil tones and a topnote of woodsmoke.
Wine Advocate 92 “The 2014 Juliénas Tradition comes from 45-year-old vines and underwent a 10- to 12-day maceration. It has a lively, vivacious nose with animated red cherry and wild strawberry scents. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, ripe, citrus fresh red and black fruit, leading to a
"Château de Fuissé expanded outside the appellation of Pouilly-Fuissé and purchased an exceptional vineyard in Juliénas, one of the great “ Crus of Beaujolais “, the Domaine de la Conseillère. The granite soils combined with a traditional artisanal open vat fermentation give wines with a delicious
