2018 Morgon LES DELYS Vignes plantées en 1926, Daniel Bouland
Mit die ältesten Reben in der Appellation. Viel Arbeit für Erträge, die teilweise bei nur 15 hl/ha liegen. Nobel!
"There are some 6,600 bottles of Bouland's 2018 Morgon Les Delys Vieilles Vignes de 1926—a cuvée that readers shouldn't confuse with Bouland's new Delys bottling from younger vines that he used to blend into his Corcelette. Revealing a deep and complex bouquet that mingles blackberry and cassis fruit with nuances of smoke, rich soil tones and spice, the wine is deep, full-bodied and enveloping, saturating the palate with layer after layer of sapid fruit and velvety tannin, its imposing structural bones entirely hidden by copious flesh. As is often the case, this is a Morgon with more than a passing resemblance to a young Clape Cornas, and in its muscular stylist register, it's one of the finest cuvées being produced in the Beaujolais today."
