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.

    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

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

Soft plush and full of gentle fading fruit edged in brown spice and roast fruit tone, some dried apricot up front and still ha... Read More

    Delicate orange rind, cinnamon, plum, rice, with allspice. Very complex and forthcoming, and not overpowering in any way. Read More

  • Domane Joseph Chamonard Morgon le Clos de Lys 1996

    Snoothrank:

  • Lapierre Morgon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Light candy cherry nose over slight toast. In the mouth, flat & thin at first leading to herbaceous and vegetal notes, finishing with soft tannins, grows on me. Read More
