Wine Advocate: 96 Points

From vines planted in sandy soils in 1926, the 2017 Morgon Les Delys Vieilles Vignes is a stunning wine that ranks as one of the vintage's qualitative peaks, wafting from the glass with a kaleidoscopic bouquet of cassis, plums, cured meats, dark chocolate, wood smoke and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's full-bodied, multidimensional and immensely concentrated, with fine tannins, tangy acids and an incredibly long finish. The sheer density of old vine extract in this bottling is more reminiscent of a young Clape Cornas than it is of most contemporary Beaujolais, but the winemaking here is utterly classical and there's nothing forced about it. The most reserved of Bouland's wines, the 2017 Delys will require at least 2 or 3 years of bottle age and reward a full 10.

Vinous Media: 94 Points

Vivid magenta. Deeply pitched black/blue fruit, floral oil and spice aromas are energized by a smoky mineral element that slowly gains strength as the wine opens up. In a brawny, concentrated style, offering sweet cassis, bitter cherry and blueberry flavors along with suggestions of licorice, fruitcake and candied violet. Becomes livelier on the penetrating, strikingly persistent finish, which features dusty tannins and a strong whiplash of lush dark fruit.
