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. Les tourelles, corbelled decorative element and with conical roof, are present on many building in Beaujolais and in particular in Morgon since the Renaissance.
Traditional vinification with controlled temperature.
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.
