2020 Louis Jadot Morgon Chatea u Des Jacques
The Collective Review
A lovely example of Morgon hinting at a bold style yet still welcoming.
A versatile red with both terroir authenticity as well as immediate pleasure.
From an important historic estate, now restored to produce authentic modern wines.

Bursting with aromas of blackberries, cherries and sweet soil tones, the Morgon is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with melting tannins and a generous core of lively fruit. Pure and seamless, this is a classically proportioned example of the appellation that's very well made, showing no discernible oak influence
Atop the hierarchy of Beaujolais Crus are Moulin-à-Vent and Morgon, with notable ageing potential. Morgon is robust and structured and can mature for a minimum 5-20 years. Purchased by Maison Louis Jadot in 2001, this south- to southeast-facing vineyard is situated on the slopes over the village of Villié Morgon. It covers 87.5 acres of the Morgon appellation, one of the 10 Crus of Beaujolais. This wine is vinified in vats for 10 to 20 days and then matured in oak barrels before bottling.
This was a very warm and early vintage with a slight lack of moisture which reduced the harvest volumes while ensuring complexity and phenolic ripeness.
