After Brouilly, Morgon is the largest winemaking area in Beaujolais with more than 1,100 hectares cultivated by 250 winegrowers. Terroir is of particular importance here, as the area’s varied exposures and soil types incite a variety like Gamay to express itself in very different ways. The schistous and volcanic rock in Morgon’s soil produce terroirs that are easily identifiable by their degree of evolution. Nevertheless, the defining characteristic of any Morgon wine is its robust, powerful and fleshy structure. It is a masculine wine, but entices the drinker with its notes of peach, apricot and plum. It also has significant aging potential, which varies between five and ten years depending on the vintage.
