Great nose. Floral, deep spice, Grapes, sour cherries, mineral, terrific ripeness and beautiful purity and freshness. Such nice acids and a classic 14 expression. Ripe tannins and great deep structure.

Gorgeous aromas or crushed granite, red flowers, orange peel, cranberry, dark blackberry. Terrific aromas right out of the gate. Palate is vivid and well fruited with a stunning texture (silky and gravelly) and great concentration. Long, mineral finish. This is awesome. Great structure which suggests some short to medium term aging.

Region: Beaujolais Wine type: Red Varietals: Gamay Organic: Certified Vineyard: 60 year old vines from the lieu-dit Croix de Chevre in the Grand Cras. 270 meters in altitude. Orientation: South facing Soil: Ancient alluvials and very rocky. Viticulture: Organically farmed since 2003, full Agribio certification. Vinification: Gravity flow to tanks, Indigenous yeast fermentations at low temperatures, to preserve fresh fruit flavors and a delicate tannic structure. Whole cluster fermenteation for 8-15 days, horizontal pressing, manual racking for elevage. Aging: Aged 8 months on the lees in 80% neutral burgundy barrels and 20% epoxy tanks. Minimal sulfur, bottled with no fining or filtration. Notes: A fine and elegant first vintage of Morgon from up and comer Antoine Sunier. Fresh aromatics, lively on the palate, and the promise of a few years for those who can resist drinking it now. RATINGS Publication: Wine advocate Rating: (89-91) The 2014 Morgon, which has been organically farmed for 10 years, undergoes carbonic maceration with 80% in old Burgundy barrels for 8 months until bottling in June 2014 with one gram per liter sulfur. It has a light red cherry, slightly gravelly bouquet that is expressive and develops dried rose petals scents with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a sense of symmetry, and a fine, edgy, bitter cherry finish. This Morgon is very elegant and should age well over the next 8 to 10 years. Publication: Other Rating: 92 (Gilman) The 2014 Morgon from Antoine Sunier is aged in a bit lower percentage of used Burgundy casks than his Régnié (eighty percent versus ninety), with the balance of the cuvée raised in epoxy-lined cement tanks. These old vines have produced an excellent and quite classic Morgon in 2014, wafting from the glass in a fine aromatic blend of black cherries, cassis, fresh thyme, campfires, a superb base of dark stony soil tones, incipient autumnal notes and a whisper of cedar. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and sappy at the core, with lovey focus and grip, fine transparency and just a bit of backend tannin on the very long and perfectly focused young finish. Fine, fine juice in the making. 2015-2035. - Jon Gilman

Out of Mag. Cool it down a bit, always good when you have a fruit driven wine. Went very well with the meat dish.

2014. Friendly and generous, but perhaps a bit less cohesive. Fruit and structure felt unlinked. This bottle wasn't singing...more like chirping.

Fruity with a curious but delicious rice aftertaste. Great cru Beaujolais

Smooth and supple offset by classic granite. A fun, funky nose.
