Graceful and crowd pleasing. Less oomph than a few years ago, but this wine has gained balance and a quiet charm. Rhubarb/raspberry, with mineral notes, a silky palate, and subtle, receding tannins. If this wine is a bit less compelling than it was in the past, it's still a tour de force of skillful winemaking: impeccably pure and oh so easy to drink. Yum.
Great on night one with TK roasted chicken and smashed potatoes. Classic red fruit and fresh soil notes. It gained weight and palate presence on day two. I believe it has a nice little future ahead of it.
This wine doesn't taste like it's getting any better. The fullness of Morgon is apparent, but the distinct forest floor and red fruit components are starting to fade. The acid is loosing it's edge and the tannin has nearly completely melted away. Still very pleasant and will continue to enjoy for another year or three.
