There are less than a handful of profound bottlers in Beaujolais; winemakers who routinely offer us wines which are solidly on par with anything you'd taste from the Côte d'Or. Folks who make wine for die-hard Beaujolais fanatics and who have such a stellar reputation that no matter which wine you opt for, you're drinking the best juice from that particular lieu dit. Daniel Bouland is one of them. Along with Lapierre and Foillard, nobody does it better in the village of Morgon. Serious about your serious Beaujolais? You're gonna want Bouland's wines.

From vines planted in sand—which is now indicated on the label—in 1927, Bouland's 2018 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes Sable unfurls in the glass with notions of ripe plums, red cherries, smokes meats, violets and black pepper. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and multidimensional, with a broad attack, considerable depth and dimension at the core, juicy acids and a long, intense finish. Powerful and concentrated but framed by velvety tannins, this brilliant Morgon is the antithesis of facile, ephemeral Beaujolais nouveau!
