DESCRIPTION:
This Morgon features a bright garnet color and great harmony of aromas between cherry, kirsch and peach. Heady and structured, with substantial tannins, it has a rich, round and silky mouthfeel – a wine with concentrated flavors. A great, very harmonious Morgon with blackcurrant, plum, violet and old rose aromas. The wine gently coats the palate to reveal successive waves of fresh red berries, especially cherries. A soft, beautifully mature wine.

Quite bright and upbeat with the red fruits on the nose, all of which leads to a palate with some assertive and sinewy tannins.

Vivid ruby. Powerful cherry and black raspberry aromas, complicated by floral and smoky mineral nuances. Juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors offer an appealing blend of richness and vivacity and turn sweeter with air. Smoky and penetrating on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and strong, floral- and mineral-tinged persistence.
