Wine Review: This bright cherry red colored wine opens with a fruity black cherry like bouquet with hints of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth, and easy to drink. It displays pleasant mild raspberry and cherry flavors with notes of minerals and earth. The finish is dry and its nicely managed tannins linger for a while. This is a pleasant Beaujolais that is very food friendly. What this wine lacks in structure, it makes up for in balance and tasty flavors. Pair it with pork chops or chicken marsala. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Morgon is unusual in that its underlying soils are schistous rock colored red by iron oxide. The vineyards lie in the commune of Villie-Morgon. Morgon has long been admired for its rich color, extract and longevity. Food Match: Turkey, pork, grilled meats, fowl, duck.
