Tasting Notes

This particular wine is the first of the Bouland cuvées focusing on Corcelette's pure, sandy, granitic soils; which create wines of great perfume and finer, rounder tannins than those of Corcelette's more schist-influenced terroirs. This is truly a Vieilles Vignes cuvée and is now labelled as such. A 50-60 year old vineyard has always been a key component of this wine and now there are two additional parcels of 80-year old bush vines. As the review below explains, instead of blending the entire crop, Bouland bottles this V.V label from two separate foudres. This particular wine was drawn from foudre #7, a four year old 2,400-litre Rousseau vessel. While we're obviously biased, we thought this had the slightest edge on foudre #4. For the record, the reviewer adds, 'While the differences between the two bottlings aren't sufficient to merit a divergence of scores, #7 is the purist's choice and seemingly the best-adapted to sustained bottle age: it was the bottling I purchased for my own cellar. " This year we asked for a portion of our juice to be bottled in magnum, and Daniel was happy to oblige. - Importer Note

'The 2017 Morgon Corcelette Vieilles Vignes (7) wafts from the glass with a creamy bouquet of cherries, cassis, dried flowers, dark chocolate, licorice andplums. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and velvety, with juicy acids and fine tannins that are entirely concealed by a deep, layered core of fruit. Concentrated but mouthwatering, it's quintessential Corcelette. There are two separate bottlings this year, numbered respectively as (4) and (7) to designate two different foudres that Bouland opted to distinguish to his clientele for the first time: this note refers to foudre #7, which hails from Tonnellerie Rousseau and represents a more recent addition to the cellar than the older, larger foudre #4.
