Product Description

"While some 44,000 acres of densely-planted Gamay Noir produce a swath of quaffable Beaujolais annually, devotees hold that Cru Beaujolais is where it’s at. Morgon, one of these ten Crus, comprises 2,750 acres of individually-staked gobelet vines on manganese and iron-rich, schist soils. This soil structure provides a minerally edge to the raspberry and dark red fruit characters typically seen. The famed Côte du Py, considered most representative of the Morgon Cru, sits at the highest point in Morgon atop an extinct volcano where hard, black soils produce complex, structured, age-worthy reds. The 2014 Morgon shows aromas of ripe raspberries and boysenberries complemented by underlying orange rind nuances. Sweet wild strawberries and garrigue flavors emerge on the deeply layered palate which is held together with seamless fine grained tannins and a distinct, acid driven minerality."
