This Morgon is very smooth, with intoxicating scents of cassis, plum, violet and
rose. The palate is filled with sweet revealing waves of red fruits. This wine is
subtle and hints at a beautiful extended maturity.
The 2009 Morgon Belles Grives – representing as usual a second Duboeuf blend (beyond their "selection" flower label) from across several of this appellation’s sub-regions, and tasted from tank – smells of strawberry and cherry preserves with hints of raw beef. Infectiously juicy and bright, it finishes invigoratingly and saliva-inducing with tart berry skin and salt, yet an undertone of meatiness also persists that is apt to become more prominent as the wine evolves, which it ought to do nicely for 3-4 years. Range: 89-90
Tannic and mineral, this is intensely structured. With its firm tannins and dark plum flavors, it is on the dry side...This is Beaujolais for aging.
