My first 2016 Morgon, I’m not thrilled, but it’s not this guy’s fault. Maybe a little too serious for itself.

Seemed a lot more like a Loire Cabernet Franc than a Beaujolais. Lots of green notes on the nose and palate. Meduim intensity with notes of green bell peppers, brussel sprouts, black licorice and unripe blackberry. Medium, drying tannins and finish.

Though a bit closed at the moment the pedigree of this wine is unmistakable. This is what Beaujolais can be at its best - deep with medium acidity and soft ripe tannins, a touch gamey, earthy violet, crushed red fruit all poised to emerge with great complexity in two to three years. Lovely now and better in the future. BTW, with this great acid and fruit balance this is a great food wine

Brilliant violet. A complex, hugely perfumed bouquet evokes candied boysenberry, cherry liqueur, incense and smoky minerals, and a suave floral overtone slowly builds with aeration. Powerful yet lively, spice- and mineral-accented dark berry, violet pastille and musky rhubarb flavors provide a compelling interplay of depth and energy. Finishes sweet and extremely long, leaving behind zesty mineral, spice and floral notes. This stunning wine is a standout in this excellent Beaujolais vintage. (Josh Raynolds, Vinous, March 2018)

Stunning deeply savory Morgon showing muscle and elegance from the cool 2016 vintage.

Dark and woodsy with green stems, wild mushrooms, and crushed juniper. It has a particularly chalky palette and flavors of smokey minerals, black cherry, tobacco, and tart red currant.
