"The 2015 vintage is being hailed as one of the best ever in the resurgent Beaujolais region, where recognition for the quality of wines from the 'Crus' of Beaujolais has soared. This comes from one of the very best, most Burgundian Crus, Morgon, where ninth generation winemaker Gérard Lagneau works with 60-year-old vines. Deep-coloured but bright, the nose has lovely crushed violets and summer berry fruits, a little stripe of game and meatiness adding interest. In the mouth this is truly gorgeous: there's a precise minerality to this that belies its 14% alcohol, the flood of sweet, so obviously ripe and plump, cherry and red berry fruit etched by fine acidity and smooth, fine-grained tannins. An exquisite Morgon really well-priced, and a fabulous bellwether for the 2015 vintage." Tom Cannavan
A lovely exuberant, ripe blackcurrant and dark fruit nose with ozone, mineral notes and dried herbs. Real structure on the palate with ripe, supple tannins, rich fruit and a hint of mineral grain. A wine of great poise and balance through to a long finish.
“A fragrant, floral expression on the nose cedes to mineral-toned, dark black fruit on the palate with bright acidity supplying freshness and vibrancy.” Decanter Magazine
"2015 is an excellent vintage for Beaujolais." James Suckling
"…Morgon is the village that produces the deepest, most Burgundian of Beaujolais wines - and the Lagneau family has the advantage of a small parcel of 60-year-old vines for this particular wine." Joanna Simon, House & Garden
