1999 Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Vieilles Vignes Cote du Py
Dark fruit and floral notes (i think) on the nose, possible cherry and raspberry. Same on the palate. A medium length earthy/spice finish.
Old vine beaujolais are something else. Had a old vines Moulin-a-vent a week back that was even better than this morgon. Got an old vines Regnie to try later.

Revisted my other bottle of this guy. Wow, two years later.
Lush cherry, berries and floral notes on the nose. Same on the palate with a lot more floral notes coming out. Finish was medium with just enough tannin to let you know this was balanced. Great acid. This baby opened up a lot in the two years it was cellared. At its peak now.

Barnsey, I had the same experience with a 1999 Cru Beaujolais recently. It seems to be at its peak now--may hold another year or two but probably won't improve further. I have a 2001 Regnie and a 2001 Fleurie that I'm tempted to open now but they might be better if I hold them until 2005.
