About The Wine

Daniel Bouland is one of Beaujolais' modern day luminaries.

One of only six producers in the region to have received two stars or better by the revered Le Classement de Revue du Vins de France, his wines have a feverish cult following in France, so much so that allocations bound for Australia get tighter each year.

His wines are staunchly traditional, fermented with 100% whole bunches and then aged in predominantly large, neutral oak. His Morgons are his most sought-after cuveés. This particular cuvee from 90-year-old vines in Morgon is the highest reviewed wine of his exquisite 2019 suite.

This is deeply set with fruit yet feels frisky to drink. It's a pure, delicious example of one of the region's great crus.

Additional Info

From The Importer

This wine used to come to us simply as Morgon Vieilles Vignes, without the name of the vineyard or lieu-dit, but is now labelled Morgon Les Délys Vignes plantées en 1926. It comes from a single hectare of 90-plus-year-old vines located on the Morgon-Chiroubles border, at the end of the Corcelette valley—a terroir historically known as Délys. The old, gnarled vines sit on a southeast-facing slope, planted at 10,000 vines per hectare.

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.

Blend : Gamay (100%)

Critic Reviews

95Points
The Wine Advocate

“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.” - William Kelley (The Wine Advocate)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. More of a warehouse/office. We do however offer a Click & Collect option from our warehouse in Ultimo, Sydney.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
