Joseph Drouhin Morgon
- Morgon is located between Régnié and Chiroubles, in the heart of the zone encompassing the Crus of Beaujolais.
- The type of soil in Morgon is unique: “rotten stone” (pierre pourrie) and crumbling schists, which perhaps explains why this Cru is so different from the others in terms of taste and longevity.
- As elsewhere in Beaujolais, the grape variety used is the Gamay.
- The type of pruning is called “gobelet”, different from the “Guyot” system used in the Côte d’Or for Pinot Noir.
GRAPE VARIETY: 100% Gamay
FOOD PAIRINGS: Very versatile with all kinds of food, especially simple and flavorful dishes such as hors d’oeuvres, charcuterie and white meats.
TASTING NOTES: “Good structure, recalling the profile of some of the great wines of the Côte d’Or. Deep garnet color; powerful aromas of cherry and will berries. Fleshy on the palate. A lot of character”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
