Rather deep ruby robe with brilliant purple tints. Red fruits (strawberry, redcurrant) predominate on the nose, associated to fragrance of flowers (succulent rose, peony).Beautiful structure in the mouth and soft silky tannins. The flavour is full with vitality ; good aromatic persistency.
A beautiful, medium deep robe that is perfectly shiny with bluish tints
and a colour veering towards carmine. This wine is characterised by
its complex nose with some lovely red fruit aromas but above all,
very floral nuances, including violet and iris, a hint of cut flowers
round off the bouquet. On the palate, finesse and balance are the
key words. The attack is supple, silky and harmonious with a touch
of raspberry. As the wine evolves it melts in the mouth, its tannins
are pleasant leaving an impression of dried flowers and elegance.
The flavours of this wine are as a result of the broken up schist’s in the soil. To describe this condition Morgon deserves its own specific expression and thus the term 'il morgonne' has been adopted. It is a full-bodied and virile wine, dominated by touches of cherry, kirsch and at times apricot. It is also suited for ageing.
