Morgan Les Rontay Dom de la Chapelle Cru de Beaujolais French Red Wine 750 mL

$19.99

The Morgon is the most powerful and fruit-driven wine of the Coudert’s 2015s. The old vines, which enjoy ideal exposure, yield a wine with more potential alcohol than the others. Chantal was worried about the vinification of this wine at first, as it had a natural potential alcohol of over 14.5%–in a region in which 12% is normal. In a moment of worry over the wine finishing its fermentation, she contacted her old schoolmate from Domaine Charvin in Chateauneuf-du-Pape—an appellation in which these alcohol levels are commonplace. His advice? “Just wait!” So she did, and the result is delicious—though somewhat atypical (Chantal jokes that this is her first Chateauneuf-du-Pape!). A first taste reveals the sheer power and richness of the vintage, but beneath the lushness is an attractive interplay of fruit and freshness that underlines unmistakably where the wine comes from.” The Importer
