"Highly expressive, pure aromas of fresh dark berries, candied flowers and minerals." ~ Antonio Galloni's VinousA great pairing for the Thanksgiving table, a Mother's Day celebration, and lots more. Think everything from picnics to bistro fare. If the bistro appeals, make it a classic steak-frites and bring out the beautiful tannins. Crisp-roasted chicken with onion gravy will work well with this Les Charmes. A bit fancier is seared duck breasts with cherry sauce. Garlicky sausages over warm lentils dressed with a dijon vinaigrette is a favorite comfort food around here; you should try it with this Morgon. Qu'est-ce que vous attendez, winelovers?
Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "Bright violet. Highly expressive, pure aromas of fresh dark berries, candied flowers and minerals. Sweet, seamless and expansive on the palate, offering concentrated blackberry, cherry and spicecake flavors that show surprising vivacity for their depth. Effortlessly plays power off finesse and finishes very long and sappy, revealing a lingering violet flourish and noteworthy clarity. Drink 2019-2024." Jan 2017
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "It has a taut, well defined bouquet at first but leave it two minutes and it develops into a showy, almost ostentatious bouquet with layers of kirsch, eau-de-vie, fig jam and licorice. The palate is sweet on the entry: very supple, thick tannins that are covered by a viscous texture and there is plenty of glycerin on the finish. I would not broach this for 4-5 years but it could well turn out to be an amazing Morgon Les Charmes" Aug 2016
Winery: "This full bodied wine, with a deep ruby colour and a red fruit flavour and comes from a granite area called 'Les Charmes' in the west part of the cru Morgon."
