2006 Gautheron Morgon Côte du Py

This bottle came from Garagiste (so did the wine inside of it) and was a reasonable $13.99.

My main impression of this wine was minerals. Lots of minerals, chalk, concrete and slate. That ought to give you some idea of what I thought was its most prominent characteristic - I use that in the singular because they all sort of lump together.

On that taut framework there was also crisp fruit. Other reviews I've seen call it "lively" and that fits well. I found it to be a clean, fresh wine whose fruit character became fuller and rounder as it aired.

Very nice, and deserving of two thumbs up.
