About

92-93

This is so much like great pinot but in fact it's gamay. Superb depth of fruit and freshness with ripe tannins. Fruit-forward finish. Can’t wait to taste from bottle. Old vines.

Product Description:

Old-vines with naturally low yields Manually harvested, as late as possible to achieve maximum ripeness Rigorous sorting of the grapes Indigenous yeasts only Whole cluster fermentation à l’ancienne, maintained at low temperatures ; lasts for ten to twenty days Wines aged on fine lees in old Burgundy barrels (from third to thirteenth passage) • Wines are bottled unfiltered Bursting with cherry, liquorice & violet, this is an extremely fresh and exciting Morgon style, and without a doubt one of the best in the region.
