Morgon Cote du Py Vieilles Vignes Potel Aviron 2005
I recently partook in something somewhat ridiculous, at least for this student. I purchased a mixed case special shipment of 2005 Rhone and Burgundy wines from my local dealer. This was one of the bottles from those spoils. Man I love Burgundy!
An interesting mixed project between Potel and Aviron to produce an affordable but punchy wine from the Beaujolais region. The nose had light cherry fruit, pain grille (aka toast), and was intense and floral – in short, a truly beautiful confluence of odour. The palate was strawberry, cherry and tart. Sitting with great balance and poise this floral wine was very structured and of rich texture. A medium length finish did not at all detract from the very authentic flavours and texture. I love wine like this – completely unmanipulated terroir driven tastyness at a good price. I wish I could get more of this stuff.
$33 at Marquis (via speical order)
