"As readers may recall, Julien Sunier’s Morgon hails from two parcels in the appellation, one being the well-known la Corcelette. The wine is not de-stemmed, is fermented in cement tanks and aged in old Burgundy barrels for eleven months prior to bottling. The 2011 offers up a very deep and vibrant nose that fully shows off the intensity inherent in this vintage as it wafts from the glass in a blend of sappy cherries, sweet cranberries, a touch of pomegranate, a beautiful base of soil, gentle notes of woodsmoke, beautiful, exotic spice tones redolent of cardamom and Ceylon cinnamon, peonies and just a touch of wood from the older Burgundy barrels. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very suave and classy, with lovely soil signature, fine mid-palate depth, ripe, but fairly substantial tannins and outstanding length and grip on the superbly focused and palate-staining finish. This is a glorious bottle of Morgon in the making, but it is still quite primary and is going to need some time in the cellar to fully blossom. 2015-2035+."
