2005 Jean Foillard Morgon "Cote du Py," $28.99, 13% alc.: Putnam Weekley told me that this ruby dark garnet was a beauty, and I never doubted him for a minute. Right away, it exudes an effusive aromatic that’s more like Pinot Noir than Gamay, all deep, dark, spicy black cherry; on the palate, it’s not quite as deep and dark, showing more of its Gamay personality, and very nicely so. It has some size and density, yet it retains a lovely sense of proportion to the creamy black cherry flavors accented with some sweet spice and subtle earth underneath, along with a note of chocolate that emerges with air. I’d have to agree with both Kim, who called this “eminently drinkable” and Scott “The Geek” Tobias, who characterizes it as “very smooth on the palate;” in fact, this lovely super middleweight drinks so well now, I’m not sure I’d want to lay it down for more than a year or two.
