The old vine bottling of Morgon from Michel Guignier is made from vines in three lieux a` dits, including Co^te du Py, with the vines averaging sixty years of age. Monsieur Guignier’s 2019 Vieilles Vignes offers up a beautifully bright and sappy nose of black cherries, sweet dark berries, bonfire, pigeon, dark soil tones, a touch of espresso and a lovely topnote of thyme. On the palate the wine is bright, full and complex, with a good core of fruit, fine soil undertow, moderate, buried tannins and lovely length and grip on the beautifully balanced finish. This is a proper young bottle of Morgon that could do with a bit of bottle age to let those backend tannins start to completely soften up, but the wine is certainly approachable out of the blocks and plenty of folks are going to end up drinking their bottles on the early side, despite the excellent potential for aging in evidence here. Fine juice. 2023-2050+
Deep, bright-rimmed magenta. An assertively perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red/blue fruits, incense and candied lavender. Smoky mineral and spice overtones build in the glass. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet black raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille that show very good depth and a firming spine of juicy acidity. Fine-grained tannins lend grip to lingering blue fruit and floral notes on the impressively long finish." ~Josh Raynolds
