Mommessin – Morgon

    MORGON

    Red

    A deep garnet red colour with a complex nose of wild cherries and hints of apricot and peach. Morgon is more robust and full bodied than most of the Beaujolias. It is rich, well structured with depth flavour and ample tanning which allows it age or «morgonner» as the local saying would describe.

    OWNER

    Since 1865 the vineyard has been owned and managed by the house of Mommessin stamped by a dual lineage : the alliance of the typically Burgundian quest for excellence and the search for bursting flavours that are expected of a Beaujolais winemaker.
