The 2016 Morgon, which comes from 60-year-old vines in Croix de Chevre and is matured in eight-year-old barrels for eight months, has a clean and precise bouquet with lifted blackberry, raspberry and just a hint of pressed flowers. This is very refined, and I appreciate the manner in which it opens in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, quite mineral-driven and tensile with a dash of white pepper enlivening the sappy, chalky-textured finish. There is potential here although I would just like to see more joie-de-vivre develop by the time of bottling.
The region of Beaujolais continues to heed the call for young vignerons who want to get in the wine game but aren’t lucky enough to own their own vineyards. For those motivated people who are willing to ferret out the treasures, you can still find amazing, old-vine vineyards that can be purchased or leased for a relative “value” in today’s wine world. As a result of this phenomena, a vibrant community of young winemakers, mostly farming organically, has developed and flourished in Beaujolais, working in an unusually collaborative way to make some of the most delicious and ethereal wines from the noble Gamay Noir grape.
