Daniel Bouland "Delys" Morgon (Beaujolais) 2009

Bright red/purple.

No vinturi - killer, lifted nose - spicy/peppery crushed raspberry/blackberry and earth with a floral element. Nice depth.

Quite powerfully flavored middleweight. Intense peppery/spicy black fruit flavors slowly taper off in the face of strongish acidity. Extremely impressive and without question the best Beaujolais I've ever tasted.

$25. From a vineyard planted in 1926
