93+ John Gilman

...offering up a deep, nascently complex and very precise bouquet of black cherries, pomegranate, fresh thyme, granite, a touch of espresso and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with a fine girdle of acidity, ripe, buried tannins and excellent length and grip on the primary, pure and gently chewy finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...very detailed and open, brambly red berry fruit mixed with dried rose petal and pastille-like scents. The palate is well balanced, showing a touch of more fruit than the Fleurie, with satisfying weight and precision on the finish, hints of white pepper sprinkled over the aftertaste.


France, Beaujolais, Morgon

Morgon is considered one of the finest of the Beaujolais Cru appellations. It is also the second largest with 2,717 acres of vineyards. The appellation is in central Beaujolais south of Fleurie and is centered around Mont du Py, whose Côte du Py granite hillsides are home to some of the best Morgon vineyards. The Gamays made in Morgon are full-bodied and concentrated but less fruity than other Beaujolais Crus. Morgons are also known for their ability to age, unlike some other Beaujolais. The alcohol content is often relatively high and in some vintages the wines approach 14% alcohol. About 700,000 cases are produced annually.


Red Wine, Gamay

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
