Domaine de Terres Dorees Jean-Paul Brun Morgon 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

"Jean-Paul Brun has made an absolutely beautiful and very transparent Morgon in the 2016 vintage. The nose jumps from the glass in a vibrant blend of cherries, sweet cranberries, fresh thyme, lovely granitic minerality, vinesmoke and incipient notes of gamebird. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, tangy and very long, with excellent focus and grip, moderate, ripe tannins and lovely balance on the very long, nascently complex finish. This is approachable out of the blocks, but this is a proper Morgon and is really built for some cellaring, so I would try to keep my hands off of it for the next five years and really let it start to build layers of complexity and open up a bit more on the palate. It will be very long-lived and probably superior to the 2015 over the long haul." - John Gilman, A View from the Cellar *(93+ Points)*
