2017 Morgon LES DELYS, Daniel Bouland
Mit die ältesten Reben in der Appellation. Viel Arbeit für Erträge, die teilweise bei nur 15 hl/ha liegen. Nobel!
"From vines planted in sandy soils in 1926, the 2017 Morgon Les Delys Vieilles Vignes is a stunning wine that ranks as one of the vintage's qualitative peaks, wafting from the glass with a kaleidoscopic bouquet of cassis, plums, cured meats, dark chocolate, wood smoke and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and immensely concentrated, with fine tannins, tangy acids and an incredibly long finish. The sheer density of old vine extract in this bottling is more reminiscent of a young Clape Cornas than it is of most contemporary Beaujolais, but the winemaking here is utterly classical and there's nothing forced about it. The most reserved of Bouland's wines, the 2017 Delys will require at least 2 or 3 years of bottle age and reward a full 10." (William Kelley in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 22.92 2018)
