Wine Review: This bright red colored wine from Morgon opens with a fresh strawberry and wet stone bouquet with hints of tomato leaf and red raspberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round and smooth. The flavors of red plum, crushed stone blend with notes of red beet. I also detected hints of loam, green tomato, and strawberry. The finish is dry, and its flavors and acidity and moderate tannins show nice length. This wine is young and definitely benefits from early aeration. Decant it and serve it with your favorite vegetable lasagna recipe. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Jean-Pierre's style is aromatic – he goes for fruit and freshness, no excess tannins - in this 100% Gamay wine. Enhanced by the age of the vines and the depth of the vineyard soil, Jean-Pierre's Morgon boasts darker, more robust flavors than your typical Beaujolais Cru, and some find it has Pinot Noir-esque depth and complexity. It's fleshy with a fullness in the mouth.
