Morgon Grand Cras 2021
This protected designation of origin appellation spreads over 1100 hectares (2719 acres) giving an average annual yield of 55 000 Hl of wine. It is said to boast the fruit of a Beaujolais and the charm of a Burgundy.
This cuvée sees the day on the Morgon terroir of “Le Grand Cras”. The deep soil, made up of granitic alluvium allows the Gamay grape to mature its tannins while retaining the fruitiness that is contributed by granite. Well-built and delectable, it ages well and is enjoyable with both white and red meat.
