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.

  • Started off fairly mild and boring, but a couple days after I pulled the cork ... punch I'm used to with Morgon. Low tannins and fairly dry, I would drink it again but decant it for about 1 hour firs Read More

  • Jonderry - This is only my 3rd Morgon, but the best yet by far was the JP Brun 2013. The other two were so similar it's like they came from the same vineyard. I don't think I could tell them apart side by side. Read More

  • Another Morgon from a good vintage with less than stellar results. Actually, 2011 is supposed to be as good as it gets for Beaujolais. Keep trying different producers I suppose... Read More

  • Just another Morgon. Virtually identical to the JE Descombes. Ripe strawberry for sure. Maybe some cranberry and red cherry. Hard to say because it disappears quickly on the palate. The aroma was almost more enjoyable than drinking it. Tannins aren't too bad though. Easy drinking and a bit lackluster. Still looking forward to the Fleurie.  Read More

  •  It's good. I love the color. Deep, rich burgundy red. Hard to see all ... ... and red grape. The last Morgon I tried had a nice dose of smoke. This one does not, but still enjoyable, approachable and safe. Low tannins makes for easy drinking. I'll keep at this one over the next couple days and see if I can get something else out of it.&nbs Read More
