Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette 2016
The majority of Daniel Bouland's old bush vines lie within the Morgon climat of Corcelette, in the hilly Haut Morgon to the north west of the appellation. As of 2015 Bouland now bottles three separate cuvées from this single climat. This particular wine, the second of the three Bouland Morgon cuvées, focuses on Courcelette's sandy granitic terroir, which gives wines of great perfume and finer, rounder tannins than those of Courcelette's schist influenced terroirs. Clients will recognise this as Bouland's core wine that we have worked with for many years, though it is now labelled as a vieilles vignes bottling in recognition of its old vine sources. On top of the core 50-60 year old vineyard that has traditionally underscored this cuvée, Bouland has recently added two further parcels, most significantly inheriting a parcel of 80-year-old bush vines from his brother, who can no longer work the land. Partly aged in aged in tank and part in 2000 litre Rousseau foudre, it's the most detailed and fragrant of the wines so far, fuelled by lovely purity of ripe plum and cherry fruit held within the velvety embrace of mouth filling, creamy tannins and finely pitched succulent acidity.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2016 Morgon Corcelette that comes from Bouland's precious 80-year-old vines possesses a more expressive bouquet than the Morgon Bellevue with shimmering dark cherry and cassis fruit that explode from the glass. The palate is well balanced with supple and ripe tannin that lend this a sensual texture. The acidity is finely tuned here, a touch of spice develops towards the finish that demonstrates fine structure and matière. Give this 12-24 months and you will have a superb Morgon on your hands. 93 points, Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate #226
