Tasting Note: Morgon is the serious side of Beaujolais, and this bottle presents that complex, rich-and-silky, gamay style.

Deep-intensity purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, red currant, raspberry compote, black cherry, strawberry and blossom.

On the palate the dry, medium-plus-bodied gamay has ripe, medium-plus-intensity, black-fruit flavors suggested on the nose with marked concentration and complexity along the midpalate.

The wine is medium in acidity with ripe, slightly-velvety tannin ultimately completing with a purple-fruit-infused, medium-plus finish.

There is varietal typicity and depth of flavor.

A true Morgon.

The outstanding 2015 harvest allowed us to utilize 30% whole clusters for additional fragrance and structure. Vine age: 40 years. Aspect: Southeast facing slopes. Soil: “Pierres-bleues” schist.
