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.

  • Georges Duboeuf Morgon Jean Descombes 2011

    Snoothrank:

  • Domaine Mont Chavy Morgon 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Decidedly beefy on the nose with earthy and autumnal accents to the dark cherry berry fruit. Moderately rich on entry this shows off attractive structure supporting slightly chewy mineral flecked dark berry fruits. Theres a late arriving beefy note along with some dried strawberry and nuanced dried herb flavors on the backend that turn a bit flo... Read More
