Intense garnet color.
The nose is complex with sumptuous aromas of black fruit, morello cherry, kirsch and subtly spicy notes.
This 2015 Georges Duboeuf Morgon Prestige is heady, powerful, robust, solid with virile tannins which will give it good aging potential.
A long, long time ago, by a whim of geology, the soil of the Morgon vintage was metamorphosed.
The granite has turned into shale, the shale has itself deteriorated and so decomposed that local winegrowers refer to it as "rotten rock".
It is however in this soil that the Gamay vines will draw this particular sap which gives this typicity to the MORGON appellation.
Here too, to build our prestige cuvée, we used the terroir - age of the vines - exhibition formula.
Excellent maturity, perfect vinification.
After which, nose above the glasses, it took a few dozen tastings over three or four months to develop our cuvée MORGON PRESTIGE.
