2016 Chateau des Jacques Morgon Cote du Py

Beaujolais | Gamay
"Morgon's most famous vineyard is on a long, steep slope. It has produced this perfumed, ripe wine. The tannins are fully integrated into the fruit giving richness and leaving plenty of room for acidity."

"This was a very creditable performance from the 2016 Morgon Côte du Py, a medium to full-bodied, concentrated wine with tangy acids and an attractive bouquet of blackberries, wild berries and cracked black pepper. Though affected, yields were less impacted by hail in Morgon than in Moulin-à-Vent, and the wine is a bit more classic in profile as a result."

"Decadent and rich with dark berries, wild mushrooms and spices. Cinnamon, too. Full-bodied, tight and juicy. Firm and reserved tannins run clearly through the center. Drink or hold."
92 PointsJames Suckling
"A brooding, light-bodied red, with black chocolate, graphite and licorice details marking the black cherry coulis and raspberry tart flavors that are focused and backed by solid acidity. Features a rich finish, with light, velvety tannins. Drink now through 2024. 251 cases made, 50 cases imported."
