'’This is a beautiful bottle of Morgon that is already quite accessible, but with the underlying chassis of structure to also age long and gracefully. Fine, fine Morgon. '' 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar
There are certain reds that often just hit the right spot, you can't quite put your finger on it, but you keep coming back to it, because its just too delicious!....and we reckon the 2013 Gamay from the prestigious Morgon appellation in Beaujolais falls into this category.
In regards to the flavour profile of this Morgon Gamay; its highlighted by charming cherries, strawberry and dark fruits, complimented with touches of spice, savouriness, light oak, minerality and earthy nuances with well developed structure and a good balance of acidity. Having aged 7 years their is a nice gentle richness and soft tannins on display (it will continue to develop further complexities over the next 2 - 3 years) That's my take on this delicious Red, but for more in-depth analysis, I advise you to read the glowing reports from today's featured scribes who are all in agreement that this is worth grabbing a case of now and enjoying over the next few years.
'’The 2013 Morgon “les Charmes” from Château Grange Cochard is a beautiful bottle of Morgon that is already quite accessible, but with the underlying chassis of structure to also age long and gracefully. The pure and sappy nose offers up scents of black cherries, granite, woodsmoke, a bit of espresso, fresh thyme and a hint of cedar. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with excellent soil inflection, a bit of firm tannin, tangy acids and outstanding length and grip on the complex and very classic finish. Fine, fine Morgon.'' 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar
‘'Sexy, mineral- and spice-accented black raspberry and cherry aromas pick up a licorice nuance with air. Smooth and expansive, offering sappy red and dark berry flavors that become livelier and sweeter on the back half. The spicy quality drives a very long, juicy finish shaped by smooth, harmonious tannins that don't get in the way of the assertive fruit.“ 92 points, Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media
