Michel Guignier Morgon Canon 2017
Very impressive red and dark berries with a layer of fresh flowers and sous bois. The palate has a super-juicy edge with fine yet assertive acidity and a long, richly fruited finish. Impressive clarity and power in terms of structure. Drink or hold.
Yohan Lardy Moulin-a-Vent Vieilles Vignes de 1903 2017
There’s a very impressive sense of balance here, thanks in part to the more than 100-year-old vines. Dark fruit, earthy notes, chocolate and spice all in abundance. The opulent tannins are captivating. Drink or hold.
Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly Cuvée Zaccharie
Stunning, concentrated black cherries and plenty of the characteristic acidity of the vintage, both seamlessly interwoven with the gentle tannins and the minerality through the very long, super-clean finish. Exemplary use of oak. Almost endless finish. Drink or hold.
Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Grands Cras 2017
This is a powerhouse with such precision and detail. So energetic. Very impressive aromas with spicy, fragrant red and purple fruit, leading to a plush and juicy palate with rich and velvety, fruit- soaked tannins. Exceptional wine. Drink or hold.
Jean-Claude Debeaune Morgon Montchoisy 2017
Very deep, dark-fruited Morgon with dark cherries and plums, wrapped in dark chocolate and carried on fluid, velvety, long tannins. Great depth here. A level of structure you would normally associate with more celebrated appellations such as Cornas or Corton. Drink or hold.
Antoine Sunier Morgon 2017
An exceptional wine that has a very plush array of ripe fruit, in the strawberry and cherry zone, with hints of cocoa and a long and succulent palate. Super fine, ripe tannins. Exhilarating finish. Excellent. Drink or hold.
