Morgon Château Bellevue Climat Les Charmes, Jean Loron, Beaujolais 2016
100% Gamay hand harvested aged in large french oak barrels (foudres) for 9 months
A great value wine from the best vintage since 1961. Intense sour cherry aromas and notes of kirsch with highlights of cinnamon, blond tobacco and floral notes (roses). Fine elegant tannins. A harmonious and seductive wine with a wide range of aromas.
Great with vegetable stew, sweet breads and farmhouse cheese.
"An appealing density and energy here, with firmly-structured yet refined black cherry fruit accompanying mineral, herbal and graphite elements - long, fresh and precise, with the potential to age." 91/100 Decanter Magazine
