Description
  • The appellation of Morgon is situated entirely within the parish of Villie-Morgon where the soil sets its wines apart from the other 'Crus' since the percentage of sand and shale is higher here due to the particular way in which the local schist layers have weathered. Consequently the wines are firmer and darker in colour than the other 'Crus'.

    Of a charming rubis color with flecks of garnet, our Morgon-Corcelettes 2012 offers first aromas of red fruit and then pleasant liquorice notes. Supple and ample on tasting, this wine is very-well balanced.
