Winemaker's Notes

This wine has a beautiful deep red color. The nose is complex and fruity, dominated by cherry. In the mouth, a bright future is predicted in the beautiful structure. This is a very harmonious wine.

Critical Acclaim

"From the high western edge of its appellation, just outside the old village of Morgon, the 2009 Morgon Domaine de la Chaponne (tasted from tank) mingles fresh black fruits; kirsch; toasted, salted nuts; high-toned herbal essences; and a haunting hint of rowan in an effusive aromatic display, backed by a mouth-filling and delightfully buoyant palate impression. Here is a 2009 that belies whatever alcohol it may have (and I didn't check in this instance). Cherry pit, salt, and chewy berry skin combine to help render the finish lip-smacking. I would not be surprised if this terrific value held up well for 3-4 years, though I cannot speak from direct experience with older examples. Range: 90-91+ "

This was a difficult glass to return to the table. A relatively rich, complex Beaujolais that was fruity (cherry dominates) without being sweet. Tremendous value. 91 pts.

Learn About Beaujolais

(boe-show-lay) Upon hearing Beaujolais, many think of the large celebration for wine that comes out the 3rd week of November, that year's vintage of Beaujolais Nouveau. But the region of Beaujolais, situated at the bottom of the Burgundy AC, is more than just the nouveau. Some Beaujolais wines can be kept (gasp!) for up to 10 years! Those are usually the Cru Beaujolais and are...

Learn About Gamay

Gamay (gah-MAY) Beaujolais' Baby Gamay is a pale colored grape, best associated with the region of Beaujolas. In fact, few regions or grapes are so wholly intertwined with one another. After being universally rejected by the rest of Burgundy in the 14th century, Gamay found its niche a bit further south, in Beaujolais. Beyond that part of France, Gamay can also be...
