Winemaker Notes

This Morgon has a deep garnet color. It has a powerful, rich nose with notes of stone and ripe red fruits. On the palate it is powerful with notes of kirsch cherry, red fruits, spices and dense tannins. To be paired with red meats in sauce, grilled white meats and beef.

COMMENTARY: The 2020 Domaine Fagolet Morgon is bright and lively, and it packs excellent fruit on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows a light grapiness in the aromas and generous ripe fruit flavors as it finishes with attractive tension. Enjoy it with a cheese and pâté platter. (Tasted: June 6, 2021, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
The 70-year old vines have given a concentrated and dense wine. Full-bodied black fruits are layered with firm tannins, giving great promise of final elegance. Drink from 2023.

Domaine Fagolet Domaine Le Fagolet Vineyard Winery Image
Domaine Fagolet is an 18 hectare vineyard located in the town of Vaux in Beaujolais. The Girard family continues the tradition with Paul and Valerie Girard (since 1980) and recently, their son Nicolas. The know-how transmits and evolves within their family vineyard, in order to make wines of quality and character. For years, they have made it a point of honor to pamper their vines. All their attention has focused on the valorization of their terroir and our grape varieties. It is thanks to the meticulous work done on their vines and so special soils that they can produce beautiful grapes. Harvesting is by hand in respect of the environment. Sorting the grapes is done in the vineyard before transporting them to the vat. Thanks to the construction of a new winery fully equipped for winemaking (in 1986), Domaine Fagolet has developed significantly. The parcels that make up the Domaine are mostly planted on the hillsides (30% slope to the highest), which gives the wines unique organoleptic properties.

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot Noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais wines exist. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the Beaujolais wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Aside from the wines simply labelled, Beaujolais, there are the Beaujolais-Villages wines, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, and offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior sections are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
