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.

  • Louis Vergé Morgon "Les Pierres Fines" 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Trader Joe's purchase, 13% alcohol, $5.99. No mention of Beaujolais or Gamay, ... what else could it be from Morgon? Perhaps it is classified as "Vins de Table de France." Light reddish-purple color. Distinct strawberry and noticeable schist. Faint cherry, plum, yeast. The taste presents some fleshy strawberry and tart cherry; other light frui... Read More

  • Morgon Chateau des Jacques 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is a pleasant and affordable Beaujolais. My biggest gripe with the grape is that it seemed a touch to watered-down for my taste. Perhaps I made the mistake of pairing this wine with a New York Strip. Next time I'll try it with chicken or perhaps turkey for Thanksgiving.Still, the wine is smooth and enjoyable. Read More

  • Marcel Lapierre Morgon 2006

    Snoothrank:

    I had the 2005 and it was extremely smooth and light...very delicious. Very fruity...It went well with the chicken. The restaurant that I went to had described it as a robust, full bodied wine but I found it to be quite the opposite. Great as a wine for the beginning of dinner but I would choose to have something heavier with a steak for example... Read More

  • Lapierre Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This wine was featured on SLATE's Culture Gabfest, the Show titled The In Bruno ... Burgundy Morgon. Steinberger highly recommended it as a good occasional wine for the price-is-object crowd, of which I am one of many. I don't think I've got it distributed here in North Carolina, yet, but I'm looking Read More

  • Lapierre Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A good winemaker will always make great wines in great years, but will make decent, good wines in a terrible year...2007 was no 2005...heavy rains in September led to water charged grapes. Wines are consequently thin, light and short in finish, perhaps herbaceous...Again, the wine drink well now, slightly chilled, with cold pork cuts. For Lapier... Read More
