The second largest cru after Brouilly lies in one village only. Here, Gamay produces generous, robust wines which are fruit-forward with notes of cherry, kirsch and apricot. With a good cellaring potential Morgon comes close to a Burgundian Pinot Noir.
Average Vine Age 50 years
The colour is deep and intense. The nose reveals nice aromas of cherry pit and kirsch. In the mouth, fruits have a good concentration. The wine is supple and the tannins are silky with a good length.
Pairs well with roasts, charcuterie, meat dishes with wine sauces, wild game with mushrooms and rich cheese.
