Flavors of juicy raspberry, blackberry, and subtle hints of spice and minerality are beautifully integrated, leading to a well-rounded and persistent finish. This Morgon is a superb example of the complexity and elegance that can be achieved in Beaujolais, offering a refined and satisfying experience that is both approachable in its youth and capable of developing further complexity with age. It pairs exceptionally well with a variety of foods, from charcuterie and cheese to poultry and grilled dishes.
