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.

  • Chateau de Raousset Morgon "Douby" Bottle 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Maroon-violet hue, nose offers dried red fruits, green herbs, green peppercorns; tart cherries and red currants driven by acidity and spice, with fine tannins. Drinks young, but promising. Read More

  • Too bad there's not a category like "Wine and Celebrities" that I could post ... ... The wine provided was a Morgon and a Bourgogne Aligote--both French, not exactly locavore.

  • Duboeuf Morgon Domaine des Versauds 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The appearance, as with many younger Beaujolais wines, is fresh and bright. Cherries and fresh raspberries are immediately apparent in the nose, but some vigorous swirling will reveal dried apricots and smokiness. Racy and streamlined, the acidity gives this wine its backbone with the delicate tannins rounding out the mouthfeel. This is a light... Read More

  • Morgon Chateau des Jacques 2008

    Snoothrank:

    After reading the reviews I wasn't sure what to expect. I agree with the smooth and light. i had just finished a Pinot Noir and the difference in texture was clear. While I prefered the Pinot, this was a good wine for the price. Read More
