91pts James Suckling
Quite bright and upbeat with the red fruits on the nose, all of which leads to a palate with some assertive and sinewy tannins.
Vivid ruby. Powerful cherry and black raspberry aromas, complicated by floral and smoky mineral nuances. Juicy black raspberry and bitter cherry flavors offer an appealing blend of richness and vivacity and turn sweeter with air. Smoky and penetrating on the finish, which shows excellent clarity and strong, floral- and mineral-tinged persistence.

One of two wines named after a legendary vine grower in Morgon, this wine has weight and great tannins. Structured, ripe black fruits are generous and developing well. The boisterous fruit needs to calm down a little, so drink this wine from late 2018.
This first-class Morgon features a bright garnet color and great harmony of aromas between cherry, kirsch and peach. Heady and structured, with substantial tannins, it has a rich, round and silky mouthfeel – a wine with concentrated flavors.
This wine pairs nicely with sirloin steak, roasted duck breast, stuffed Portobello mushrooms and aged cheeses.
