The grapes this wine is crafted from come from vines that are over 70 years old, bottled without filtration, when the moon is in the correct quarter.
As an appellation, Morgon is considered by many to be the most ‘noble ‘ of those from the Beaujolais region. What is more, a great Beaujolais with structure and length is said to â€œmorgonneâ€. This celebrated Cru is the fruit of two factors :The Gamay grape variety (a black-skinned berry with white juice) and the very specific soil made up of decomposed granite and crumbly schist that it grows in. Deep garnet robe. 10 months in oak develops the red fruit aromas. Serious tannin structure and a complete, long finish.
There’s a lot of power and depth to this wine.
Picked for our anniversary. Rather than going out, it was a lovely stay at home dinner for two.
