As always, this is likely to be Bouland’s most age-worthy wine and it is something special in 2019. It’s a superb Délys, expressing lifted mulberry fruit, lots of spice, hints of nettle and a certain, graphite-like minerality. Already a wonderful drink but, as always, the tannins are the most tightly wound, the steeliest, reminding us that this is a wine that will have no problem living and developing for decades.
The 2019 Morgon Les Delys Vignes plantées en 1926 has turned out brilliantly, wafting from the glass with aromas of ripe cherries, blackberries, strawberries, sweet soil tones and spices. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, it’s seamless and multidimensional, and with striking concentration, succulent acids and powdery tannins, it’s long and penetrating. While this is carrying less puppy fat than the 2018 at the same age, it’s still quite a demonstrative, fruit-driven vintage of Les Delys, and while it will be long-lived, it can also be approached young. 95 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
