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.

The 2018 Morgon Bellevue Sable comes from younger vines, planted on Viala rootstock in sandy soils—as the "sable" newly added to its label makes clear. Revealing aromas of blackberries, smoked meats, cracked pepper and violets, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and muscular, with powdery structuring tannin, juicy acids and a blockier, more reserved profile than the Chiroubles and Brouilly that preceded it. This will demand a couple of years' patience before it shows all its cards.
