Importer's Notes: "This comes from 27 acres of 70+year-old vines growing across Morgon’s six climats. All the grapes are de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeast. Most of the wine is raised in very large, old foudres of 5- and 6,000-liters for nine to ten months, while about 5% is aged in older 225-liter barrels. This is an especially dense, dark Morgon. No fining; light filtration at bottling."
Very old vines (70 to 100 years old!) Of Gamay Noir growing on a soil of blue shales and rotten rocks. A nose of black cherry and fresh raspberry on spicy notes. On the palate a beautiful aromatic complexity, power, fat and matter are at the rendezvous. Surprising balance and greediness, mineral and without heaviness with well-melted tannins.
