“The 2017 Morgon had just been bottled when I tasted it last year, and it’s performing much better today, revealing a complex bouquet of ripe cherries, dark chocolate, smoked meats, peonies and spices. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with excellent depth and concentration, concluding with a sapid—indeed carnal—nish.” – 92 Points, Robert Parker.
“From a selection of vineyards in Morgon (Vermont 0.4, Py 0.4, Aux perrets 0.25,Croix de chèvre 0.43, etc.) with an average vine age of 60 years. Dried roses, dark cherry, cinnamon and sweet earth. Fleshy supple tannin, mouth-perfume and ripe cherry flavour, depth and length, the finish is particularly impressive. Unforced and beautiful.” – 95 Points, Wine Front.
“2 ha (5 acres) in six different parcels, e.g. Aux Charmes in the west and Corcelette in the north of the cru. Mainly old bush vines – some need replanting. More expressive than the Régnié at the moment. Darker, riper fruit aroma – more fruity. More juice in the berries from these sites. Same dry finesse in the texture but more rounded and more juicy. There’s a darkness to the fruit that is very elegant. The tannins are dry but supple. Cool, long and savoury. The overwhelming character is still that stony/mineral quality. Long and fresh, but so beautifully paper-dry. Opens to more fruit.” – 17 Points, Jancis Robinson.
