The 2019 is our first taste from Bouland’s recently acquired parcel in the lieu-dit called Pré Jourdan, which sits on the Morgon-Fleurie border. Bouland now farms a tiny parcel here of 70-year-old vines, just enough to fill a single large cask (a five-year-old Rousseau foudre in this case). The soils here are predominantly granitic sand, although they run deeper than in Bellevue and Corcelette providing Bouland with a fleshier and very aromatic Morgon to add to the range. Expect waves of succulent, fleshy fruit, very fine tannins and a long, perfumed finish. Superb.
Aromas of cherries, blackberries, cassis, dark chocolate and smoked meats introduce the 2019 Morgon Pré Jourdan, a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and generous wine with an ample core of nicely concentrated fruit, succulent acids and fine, elegantly chalky tannins. As readers will remember, this new cuvée—which debuted with the 2018 vintage—derives from a lieu-dit near the village in the direction of Fleurie. 93 points, William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
