Hay, leather, cherry, earth, a bit of a cola and candy cane too. Boy what a ride! The palate is perfectly drawn : superb acid backbone, extremely ripe cherry all along, some width, some weight, a bit of tannins this time (oh complexity), some grip and a bit of salt and meat along with a radiant cherry in a very long finish. As always this is grand 🍷 — 2 days ago
First Morgon. Like drinking a bouquet of dried flowers, but the fruit are still working. Finish is a bit short, but I found this wine pleasantly exciting. — 8 days ago
Just terrific! Definitely at the youthful point of its journey—a lot of sap and predominant plumb—but certainly all else in place to suggest a wonderful run of 5 to 8 years in the cellar. An easy pour for Thanksgiving 2019 from this 2018 vintage.

My second Morgon. I let it breathe for 45min-1hr. Velvety mouthfeel. Fruity, vegetal (I’d say red pepper), floral (but definitely tame), and (I think) some milk chocolate. Nose isn’t anything to cry home about. Flavour wise, it is very well balanced. The alcohol is a bit too pronounced on the nose, though it doesn’t follow itself into your mouth. — 5 days ago
Redfruits and stony, mineral aromas, complex and nicely round on palate, long finish, lovely old vine Gamay!! — 10 days ago
