Morgon

Morgon

Julien’s Morgon cuvée originates from two separate parcels of equal surface area, one located in the southwest facing slope lieu-dit of “Corcelette” and the other at the edge of the Morgon/Régnié line, in the parcel named “Oeillat.” Both parcels were planted in the 1960s and are composed of decomposing granitic topsoil, what is called locally as roche pourrie or rotted rock, over clay base 2 meters below, lending heft and structure to the wine.

The Morgon cuvée, in comparison to the two other wines from the domaine, is marked by dark fruit and wild cherry, black tea alongside meatiness and a more developed expression of crushed stone and earth. The wine from this terroir benefits from several years in bottle before unwinding sufficiently to reveal all the charms enclosed within.
