The Daniel Bouland Morgon Corcelette Cailloux Vieilles Vignes is made with 100% Gamay grapes from the Morgon PDO appellation in Beaujolais. These grapes are hand-harvested, and vinified in concrete vats before being aged in old foudres. It is floral and fruity on the nose, with notes of dried flowers, cherry pit, and sweet spices. On the palate, it is elegant, with fine floral notes and a long finish.
This smooth red wine is great to pair with cheeses like Camembert and Pont l’Eveque. For entrees, enjoy a glass with bone-in ham, steak, duck terrine, pork roast, or lasagna. If you’d like to keep drinking it well into dessert, it goes great with a slice of blueberry pie.
Daniel Bouland is a not a new name, especially if you are familiar with the Beaujolais region. His eponymous domaine lies in the hamlet of Corcelette in Francem, and some of his vines are nearly a hundred years old. His terroirs are exceptional and diverse, planted on Vialla rootstock, on steep slopes. Despite his quality wine, and his wealth of experience, Bouland is a quiet vigneron that keeps mostly to himself and to his vines. He is humble, discreet, but incredibly hardworking, ensuring all of the grapes that grow in his domaine are cared for, and each bottle of wine is to a standard he upholds.
