Lot #238. Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2009

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Region: France, Beaujolais, Morgon.
Score: 93+ WA.
"Marcel and Mathieu Lapierre showed me a March bottling of 2009 Morgon, although a portion of that same lot – destined to appear in U.S. markets – will remain in cask until September. Exuberant strawberry and red raspberry in confitured and distilled form are threaded with lilac inner-mouth floral perfume, striking notes of blood orange rind, nutmeg, toasted pecan, blond tobacco, and subtle hints of game and forest floor. Silken in texture, sappy and pungent, this finishes with an exhilaratingly animated exchange of fruit, flower, and mineral elements and a sense of levity rare for its vintage." Wine Advocate #190, Aug 2010
Provenance: The Chambellan Cellar
Notes: Nicked label.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $40
