Black cherry aromas, licorice and violet intertwined with finesse, paint a sensation of freshness and energy on a canvas of refined silky beautifully structured tannins. And don’t forget to add to that mix the superb stony minerality associated to the Morgon terroir. It is hard to resist the bright fruit of this wonderful Beaujolais at its youth but give it more time in the bottle and it will give you back more and more depth resembling in many aspects its glorious Pinot Noir cousin from a bit up north. The wine was matured for nine months on large Burgundian oak in contact with the lees. The grapes come from the precious old vineyards of Domaine Lapierre in Morgon, on acidic granite terroir. This is an exceptional Gamay at its most noble form.
