LOUIS-CLAUDE DESVIGNES MORGON COTES DE PY, 2007

Morgon is, along with Moulin-à-Vent, the most age worthy of the Cru Beaujolais and Desvignes wines are fine examples. Deep, bright red. Mineral-driven aromas of blood orange, raspberry and Asian spices, with a subtle floral note gaining power with air. Lush and creamy on entry but gains energy and tightens up with air, showing sweet red fruit flavors and very good mineral cut. Expands on the finish, leaving pure red berry and floral notes behind.
