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

Tasting note

The bouquet of the Morgon 2009 is a veritable basket of fruits with delicious aromas of cassis and mostly currant. Nice balance; the tannins are round, supple and mellow. On tasting, the aromas revealed in the bouquet reappear with intensity. Lovely length.
