Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes for this Georges Duboeuf “Flower Label” wine come from vines that are as old as 50 years that are trellised in the traditional Gobelet style. The grapes are harvested manually, in whole bunches, and are de-stemmed prior to crushing. Semi- carbonic maceration takes place, lasting between 10 to 12 days and fermentation is conducted at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks.


Interesting Facts
Morgon is undoubtedly the most typical of the ten Beaujolais Crus, therefore the easiest to identify in a tasting. It's particular terroir only intensifies with age. The science of wine is not opposed to assuming an occasional air of mystery! Morgon takes its name from a hamlet whose vinous reputation caused it to be added to that actual village, Villié, so much so that the original name has been forgotten. Its producers love to praise Morgon as "the fruit of Beaujolais, the charm of Burgandy." The renowned climate of Le Py helps perfect wines that best reflect the special personality of a true Morgon. This is most definitely a forthright and robust red wine, perfectly capable of prolonged bottle age.


Serving Hints

This wine pairs best with braised beef, mushroom risotto, spicy foods and mature cheeses.
