2019 Domaine Daniel Bouland Morgon Pré Jourdan (750ml)15 0 0 0
Daniel Bouland is a great producer of old-fashioned Morgon. From less than 7 hectares of old vines in the Douby, Côte de Py, and Delys, lieux of Morgon, plus small parcels in Chiroubles and Cote de Brouilly, he makes wines that can readily age 20 years and that some compare to fine Cote de Nuits Burgundy. All his grapes are hand-harvested and vinified with full clusters in order to extract all the organoleptic qualities, and bottled unfiltered.
The Morgon Cuvée Pré Jourdan, which debuted with the 2018 vintage, is derived from a lieu-dit near the village in the direction of Fleurie. The vines are 70 years old.
"The 2019 vintage is only the second for the Pré Jourdan cuvée from Daniel Bouland, as this parcel was only purchased the year before. The 2019 version is a flat out gorgeous on both the nose and palate, The bouquet jumps from the glass in a beautiful, black fruity mélange of black cherries, sweet dark berries, woodsmoke, pigeon, a superb base of granitic minerality and a topnote of fresh thyme. On the palate the wine is vibrant, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with lovely mineral undertow, ripe, buried tannins and outstanding length and grip on the perfectly balanced and stellar finish. This is a great young bottle of Morgon. 2020-2060." 94+ points - John Gilman (View From the Cellar, Sept. 2020)
