Reply to "March 2020 - What are you drinking?"

2004 Marcel Lapierre Morgon.  Was worried since i took posession of a couple of these bottles - the colour in them is so pale it looked like a rose and I wasnt sure what to expect.  Stood it up, carefully decanted off very fine sediment and WOW.  The floral lift off the nose was stunning.  It rolled into blood orange, a bit of cinnamon and licorice and again this floral lift on the end and hints of mint.  In spite of being a shade past rose there was good body and acidity to it.  Mrs. VeV remarked that all the hallmarks of young bojo - the strawberries, sappy fruits, bubblegum notes were nowhere to be found and she loved it too.  Great foil for BGE roast chicken and a green salad.
