Marchand & Burch Morgon is produced from hand-harvested 45 year old vines using traditional techniques including gentle whole bunch fermentation and maturation in concrete. The deep purple-tinged ruby colour is a hallmark of the Cru. The nose engages with ripe raspberry, forest fruits, anise spice and sweet earth and leathery notes. The palate is full-fruited with a vibrant juicy acidity that makes the mouth water and a powdery tannin profile which lengthens the finish to reveal stony earth, leather and pepperberry notes.
Enjoy now and embrace the vibrant drinkability of Gamay from Beaujolais, or wait a little longer for the savoury complexity of Morgon to further assert itself into the profile of the wine.
