If you love Pinot Noir, you will love Gamay Noir from Morgon and Fleurie “Cru”. More Pinot Noir in style than Cabernet Sauvignon, the best are medium-bodied, majestic, perfumed red wines with verve that balance, sometimes juicy fruit fruit with crunchy minerality all under an umbrella of balanced alcohol. They can be enjoyed young, but the best, especially Morgon “Cru”, can age for decades. Mine is organically farmed and hand made in every sense of the word. But don’t listen to me, here are some experts thoughts:


Wine of the Week
"Classic raspberry and plum aromas with a faintest trace of pepper mark the initial aroma. The wine improves markedly with several hours of air. Relatively rich entry, finish is superb. Best served with medium-weight foods. There are some tannins for structure, but impeccably balanced."
- Dan Berger, Napa Valley Register, February 20, 2024 - Read full article

"A sensational wine! A textbook example of a Cru that displays a strong sense of place. Medium deep, violet color, wonderful purity and intensity with the aroma. Red fruit galore: dark cherry, red raspberry, savory spice, and ample weight on the palate. Beautifully ripe, seamlessly smooth, layered, nuanced, lifted acidity, impeccably balanced with some taunt, yet ripe tannins on the back palate. With about an hour of aeration, the range and intensity of the wine is magnified. It’ll age gracefully for another decade. Produced from low yield, high density, seventy-year-old vines from a raised elevation vineyard site. Not fined or filtered. A wine with the “it factor”!"

“A bright, vibrant, delicious style, with a fragrant thread of dried rose petal, violet and dusty earth overlaying sweet notes of wild raspberry and dried strawberry. Shows harmony and integration, offering graphite energy from start to finish. Anise, smoke and dried herb hints arrive on the medium-length, snappy close.”
- Wine Spectator

9/10 POINTS
"Medium to dark garnet in the glass, this wine smells of boysenberry and blood oranges. In the mouth, silky flavors of blood orange and boysenberry mix with a touch of meatiness and a hint of struck match. Excellent acidity and a really nice stony underbelly make for a lovely package. It is a textbook interpretation of Gamay, unsullied by oak or overt winemaker effort. It’s fresh, pure, and a great expression of the grape and the place.”
