Morgon

Description

The second largest cru after Brouilly lies in one village only. Here, Gamay produces generous, robust wines which are fruit-forward with notes of cherry, kirsch and apricot. With a good cellaring potential Morgon comes close to a Burgundian Pinot Noir. Appellation size: 1 079 ha

Winemaking

Traditional vinification with controlled temperature.

Tasting note

The colour is deep and intense. The nose reveals nice aromas of cherry pit and kirsch. In the mouth, fruits have a good concentration. The wine is supple and the tannins are silky with a good length.

Suggested food pairings

Roasts, charcuterie, meat dishes with wine sauces, wild game with mushrooms and rich cheese.

Serving temperature

13°C
