Domaine de Thulon Beaujolais-Villages Morgon “Les Charmes”
WHY WE LOVE IT
- The grapes are sourced from vineyards with an average age of 50 years.
- The grapes are sourced from a small vineyard site of 1 hectare consisting of granite and schiste soils.
Varietal Composition: 100% Gamay
Elaboration: Manual harvest with 80% of the fruit destemmed before crush. Alcoholic fermentation in vats with aging on the fine lees. Light filtration before bottling at the estate.
Tasting Notes: The Morgon Les Charmes has a clean and vibrant bouquet with perfumed dark cherries, redcurrant, and a touch of gravel and rose petal. The palate is nicely structured, brimming over with energy. The acidity is very well-balanced, yet quite sturdy, as Morgon should be, but without the hard edges. Abundant mineral-laced raspberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors are supported by a subtle white pepper quality that builds on the back half.
