- 2013 Marcel Lapierre Morgon - France, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Morgon (5/6/2019)
Compared the sulfured (S) and Non Sulfured (N) side by side.
S: Pretty light ruby color with maybe just a touch of opaqueness.
Really pretty and very floral nose of blue flowers, cherry and a hint of medicine. The prettiness continues on the palate with delightful strawberries and red cherries with light weigh but good intensity. Sappy with a crisp finish and floating lightness.
U: No obvious difference in color side by side. Maybe a very small shade darker, but that could be the lighting. Original the nose was more savory, although it became floral with air. Nevertheless retains a little more of the herbal medicine tone than the S.
On the palate leans more cherry than strawberry, has a savory quality and finishes a touch alkaline.
They come across as twins but with different personalities. A fun comparison. I'd rate them both 91, showing really well right now. (91 pts.)
