VERY NICE BEAUJOLAIS

"A step above the crowd. Thanks to staff for the rec.Some depth, complexity. Held up well with seared sea scallops."

SO-SPO

"Middling. Though not bad. Drinkable. But, I wouldn't order again."

DUSTY

"This wine had that musty, first barnyard smell. It evolved into a quite drinkable wine that matched roast chicken quite well. I'm not sure how much life this has at this point on the store shelves. It has needed appropriate storage. I would not buy again due to questionable storage, longevity."

"I tried to like this Morgon. It just didn't hold up to better cousins in the district."

MIDDLING

"This wine was not particularly drinkable the first night. I thought it thin. The second night, it came a bit more alive, and matched a roasted chicken. I don't think I would buy again."

DECENT

"For a CA pinot noir, its a good buy, quite drinkable, - and at a nice mid price-point . Don't expect classic French bourgogne, however."

VERY DECENT MORGON

"Has been my go-to for Morgon at Empire. Decent depth and structure. Almost a 5-star. Last couple bottles maybe not as good as when first ordered. I will continue."

"Drinkable, pleasant, semi-fruity. But I don't get these overwhelming 5-star reviews? Good basic wine. Nothing more."

VERY GOOD BEAUJOLAIS

"Just shy of a Burgogne. Good nose and quite quaffable. Open and put into fridge for 30 minutes. Then enjoyed with goat cheese (Humboldt Fog or a Bucheron)."

REALLY VERY GOOD!

"Chardonnay, but from the Macon area. Round, warm with a crisp, great touch of that Burgogne minerality. Marvelous price! (A little further north in the area, double the price.) Try it with sheep or goat cheese. Not too cold. Wow!"
