"Blueberries, cassis and plums on the nose alongside some licorice. Focused and nicely filled in with a medium body, broad tannins and a dark-fruited finish. Drink or hold"

Tasting Notes
"The Morgon Corcelette is very pretty, wafting from the glass with notes of raspberries, cherries, rose petals and warm spices. Medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, with a fine-boned, mineral profile that reflects its comparatively high-altitude origins, it's elegant and charming, concluding with a saline ... read more

The Wine
Certified organic form one of the two grand crus of Morgon. 50+ year old vines with a southern exposure. Traditional semi-carbonic maceration, whole cluster fermentation and indigenous yeasts.
Aged in 3-4 year old barrels

Winemaker Notes
The essential point of Beaujolais is that it is a wine to be drunk and enjoyed, not discussed and deconstructed. The juicy aromas and bright acidity combine to make the ultimate appetite stimulant a great wine to open at your next party and sure to be enjoyed by all.

The Estate
Domaine des Marrans is located in Fleurie, in the heart of the northernmost section of Beaujolais. Founded in 1970, the current proprietor is the young and talented Mathieu Mlinand, who joined the family domaine in 2008. With old vines and crystalline granite sites, Mathieu is growing some of the most pristine Gamay we know. The vines are pruned in the traditional Gobelet vinetraining method and the harvest is done only by hand, using small crates to minimize oxidation. In the cellar, vinification is old school, with semi-carbonic maceration using whole clusters, minimal intervention, and only indigenous yeasts used. The wines are then aged in large older barrels for 10 months before bottling. This lineup is remarkably pure and fresh for 2015, with a grain and spice to the old vine Gamay that underlines how Mathieu nailed the harvest date for this vintage. These wines display their terroir with clear definition and racy floral deliciousness.
