Tasting Notes Pale plus dark ruby purple. Initially reticent, the nose of this Morgon exhibits concentration and youthful reserve, with wild dark fruits and spice notes; with time in the glass, the wine’s depth and power become more evident. In the mouth, there is the impression of healthy, ripe fruit, and this cru is mouth-filling, possessing noteworthy substance and dimension. Embedded acidity contributes tension while firm tannins add grip. Young and somewhat austere, this Morgon from a selection of parcels along the appellation’s famous Py slopes, is a serious and very Burgundian iteration (more Gevrey than Beaune). Can be drunk in the near term, after decanting, yet it has the potential to improve until 2019 to 2023. - RB
