Domaine Chignard 'Les Moriers' Fleurie 2014
91  Wine Advocate 
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

Antoine Sunier Regnie 2015
93  John Gilman 
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

Domaine Piron Chenas Quartz 2010
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2010 Chenas Quartz Domaine Piron & Lameloise – bottled for one week when I tasted it – reflects the quartzite-rich soil in which it grows in mouthwatering salinity and an active sense of mineral impingement. Like the corresponding Morgon Cote de Py, 40% of this matured in

94  Wine Enthusiast 
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

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

Fabien Collonge Chiroubles L'Aurore 2015
92  Wine Enthusiast 
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

Kevin Descombes Morgon 2014
91  Vinous Media 
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

Damien Coquelet Chiroubles 2015
93  John Gilman 
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.

Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2011 1.5L
93  John Gilman 
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

90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2015 Beaujolais, which undergoes a semi-carbonic maceration, has a lively red cherry and iodine-scented bouquet that is paradigmatic of this vintage. The palate is well balanced with succulent fleshy and smooth red cherry and strawberry fruit. This shows more class than the

(1)
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "Duboeuf’s 2011 Morgon Domaine de la Chaponne offers metaphorically cooler blue fruit and high-toned herbal and bittersweet floral accents when compared with its immediate stable mates, and its smokiness as well as fine-grained invigorating tannins are both decidedly black
