Morgon, La Chanaise, Dominique Piron,

£15.38

From one of the richer crus of Beaujolais, this Morgon has a deep nose earthy with berry fruits. Cherry and mushroom notes on palate with well balanced tannins and a good length.

Dominique Piron’s oldest known ancestor was born in Morgon in 1590. Since then, there have been 14 generations of wine growers in the family.
Morgon and Moulin à Vent wines have long been renowned among France’s finest wines. Gamay is the heart and soul of the Beaujolais crus, a cross between the Pinot Noir and Gouais Blanc vine varieties, it was originally imported from Croatia by the Huns in the 4th century. Gamay is a quite remarkable variety because it can either be enjoyed young for its fruitiness and elegance, or allowed to age, developing the structure and mineral qualities so appreciated by connoisseurs.
