Morgon is one of the crus of Beaujolais. Like the other crus, it’s located in the hilly vineyards of northern Beaujolais. The area produces dense, long-lived wines that can approach the quality of red Burgundy. An especially excellent vineyard in Morgon is the Cote de Py.

  • Foillard Morgon Cote du Py 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Lush cherry fruit tempered by a complex minerality. A strangely-appealing rubbery Band-aid quality towards the end. Read More

  • Lapierre Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Dry, dusty nose with tannins seeping through. Tight and mineral, almost vegetal (bay leaf, maybe asparagus). Earthy finish is pleasant, and that saves the wine. Decant and give it a year or so. Read More

  • Thevenet Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Wet wool notes on the nose break into an acidic wine with some musty flavors, mushroom and a delicate earthiness. Good acidity and black cherry fruit add complexity. Finishes on strong iron and iodine. Read More

  • Thevenet Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Regnie is the youngest Cru of Beaujolais, dating from 1988 but is part of the historic home of Beaujolais. This has superb aromatics with balsamic, candlewax tones almost verging on eucalyptus with a roast meaty edge and layers of intense and complex violet pastille and wild berry fruits. This smells like old vines. This has big weight but is n... Read More

  • Thevenet Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Flowers dominate. Some berries are shining through though. Some acid on the mouth. Not too shabby. Read More
