Domaine de la Tour des Bans - Morgon
France - Burgundy
REGION: Beaujolais, France
We do occasionally get people asking us for Beaujolais Nouveau. We smile and say we don't stock it, but would they like to try the real thing instead? We tried to like the Nouveau. but just can’t - it's really a marketing fad to boost wine sales, and they are barely wines at all. But don’t confuse those wines with proper cru Beaujolais like this one. Gamay is a wonderful grape when made correctly - all dark spice, fruit and earth. Morgon is perhaps the darkest of them all.
