Julien Sunier Morgon 2016

External Review:

The 2012 Morgon comes from the lieux-dits of “Corcelette” and “Les Charmes” (1.45 hectares), the vines around 60 years old. It is aged entirely in wooden barrels for around 11 months. Served from magnum, it has a pure bouquet of vibrant red cherries and crushed strawberry fruit — delicate and poised, but perhaps not quite as engaging as the Regnie. The palate is medium-bodied, taut and refined and angular at the moment. Yet one has to stand back and admire its transparency and poise, the finish deceptively long in the mouth. This tensile Morgon should give much pleasure over the next decade. Drink now–2022.

Bright violet color. Vibrant, mineral-laced red berry and floral pastille scents, along with hints of succulent herbs and blood orange. Juicy, focused and light on its feet, offering intense, refreshingly bitter-edged raspberry and redcurrant flavors. Fine-grained tannins give shape to the finish, which lingers with excellent persistence and an echo of candied rose.
