"Antoine Sunier’s Morgon is produced from a parcel of sixty year-old vines in the lieu dit of Croix de Chevre, with the wine fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in eighty percent old Burgundy casks. The 2016 version is a beautiful and utterly classic young bottle of Morgon, offering up a deep and pure bouquet of black cherries, lovely, granitic soil, woodsmoke, gamebird, fresh thyme and a touch of citrus zest in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full and focused, with a lovely core, excellent transparency, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and nascently complex finish. This is really a very elegant and soil-driven iteration of Morgon. 2017-2040."

"The 2016 Morgon, which comes from 60-year-old vines in Croix de Chevre and is matured in eight-year-old barrels for eight months, has a clean and precise bouquet with lifted blackberry, raspberry and just a hint of pressed flowers. This is very refined, and I appreciate the manner in which it opens in the glass. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, quite mineral-driven and tensile with a dash of white pepper enlivening the sappy, chalky-textured finish. There is potential here although I would just like to see more joie-de-vivre develop by the time of bottling."~Neil Martin

5/5 stars
Perfect summer Bojo! - The 2016 Morgon Beaujolais by Antoine Sunier is a perfect example of what Cru Beaujolais should taste like. Certified Organic and fermented with native yeasts in mostly old Burgundy casks, this wine instantly stands out once you open the cork. With notes of fresh strawberry and violet on the nose, the palate shows a more structured, tougher wine with great acid that should give it some longevity. Pair this Morgon with dishes like Duck Confit to Chinese food, you can’t go wrong!
