The 2009 Morgon from Marcel Lapierre is a rather big and powerful wine with plenty in reserve. It's already pretty juicy and gamey, but it has room to improve over the next few years. Nice stuff that I picked up for under $20 at Tower on Piedmont
The 2009 Morgon Delys from Daniel Bouland.
This wine was also quite large with lots of game and meat notes. A good dose of ripe red fruit, too. Got this one for $23 at Toco Giant in Druid Hills.
The 2009 Morgon Corcelette from Daniel Bouland was full of meaty and dark black raspberry flavors. It was earthy and funky with lip-smacking fruit that is young and crisp. This was $20 at Tower on Piedmont. Another winner in 2009 Cru Boo.
The 2009 Fleurie from Villa Ponciago. From the winery website, "The Villa Ponciago domaine enjoys ideal conditions for expressing all the finesse, elegance and silkiness of the ‘’queen of the crus’’: the omnipresence of the slopes, the crystalline rock, typical of the appellation, plus northeast and south-southwest exposures." The Villa Ponciago is showing the lightest of the Cru Boos on my list. It is clearly a wine that needs some time, which is characteristic of Fleurie. This will be a beauty of a wine a few years down the road. Right now, it really needs some air and to be paired with food to coax it out of its shell. At $17, it's another great buy in 2009.
