94 points Wine Advocate

Revisited from my own cellar, the 2018 Morgon Les Delys Vieilles Vignes de 1926 is open and demonstrative, bursting with aromas of ripe blackberries and cherries, with only hints of the savory nuances to come with age. Full-bodied, ample and enveloping, it's fleshy and textural, with a deep and layered core, ripe but lively acids and velvety tannins. Right now—indeed, more so than a year ago—the wine is dominated by its youthfully primary puppy fat, but I continue to feel that its fruit-driven profile is deceptive and that it will really reward more bottle age.

These very, very old vines, planted back in 1926, are responsible for the only Morgon from Daniel Bouland that has landed a bit higher in octane than customary in the 2018 vintage, as this wine comes in at an even fourteen percent. However, the wine is very precise and vibrant on the nose and seems just a tad lower in octane than this, as it offers up a deep and black fruity nose of black cherries, cassis, woodsmoke, raw cocoa, gorgeously complex, dark soil tones, currant leaf, lavender and exotic spice tones of cumin and clove. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with marvelous focus and grip, ripe, suave tannins and a long, plush and very complex finish. The slightly higher octane level here is only apparent in the more easy-going and plush texture of the wine out of the blocks, as there is more ripe, puppy fat fruit here to cover the structural elements. Great juice in a very slightly riper style. (Drink between 2024-2055) (1/2020)
