2009 Marcel Lapierre Morgon

I first posted on this wine back in the Fall when I tore into a bunch of 2009 Cru Beaujolais to see what the fuss was about.  I recently opened another bottle of the Lapierre and was swooned again. The wine is really open and fleshy for such a young wine, yet it has enough in reserve to clearly age for a bit. However, I continue to find it immediately appealing, and it has delighted both geeks and non-geeks alike in my company.

 This Lapierre can still be found locally, most recently for around $20 at Toco Giant on Druid Hills. Go get some. Drink one now, and bury a couple to try a few years down the road. You won't be disappointed.
