2018 Domaine des Marrans "Corcelette" Morgon, Beaujolais, France

Corcelette is one of the two grands crus in Morgon, or would be if such honorifics were allowed there. 100% Gamay Noir from 50+ year old vines, grown in the granitic and schisted soils native to Morgon, fermented in the traditional semi-carbonic style, and aged in 3-4 year old barrels. This is not Nouveau. This is serious wine, which can evolve in the cellar for two decades. If you think you know what Beaujolais tastes like, this is a wine you should try. Powerful and complex.
