Château des Jacques
Morgon 2020

Notions of cherries, berry compote, sweet soil tones and smoke introduce the 2020 Morgon, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy wine with lively acids, melting tannins and a saline finish. As usual, it's derived largely from Corcelette, which accounts for its rather charming profile.

Cool and lithe, this earthy Morgon has flavors of stewed plums and black currants, held by pointedly brisk tannins that have the chew of blueberry skins. It's a powerful gamay, with a scent one panelist called out as Himalayan kush - and offeres a classic companion to charcuterie.

This slightly cloudy and dark ruby colored Gamay opens with a blackberry and plum bouquet with a hint of pomegranate and potting soil. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a tart cherry and mild blackberry blend with notes of pomegranate and cranberry. I also detected hints of red licorice. The finish is dry, and its moderate tannins linger nicely.

Deep ruby. Spice-accented aromas of cherry, black raspberry and candied flowers, along with hints of licorice and cracked pepper. Plush and seamless on the palate, offering juicy dark and bitter cherry flavors that show depth and spicy lift. Closes on a subtle floral note, displaying very good tenacity and smooth tannins that sneak in late.

The 2019 Morgon unwinds in the glass with notes of sweet berry fruit, plums, spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with lively acids and supple, powdery tannins, it's especially seamless and charming this year.
