Neal Martin writes:  The 2022 Morgon comes from 70- to 100-year-old vines on alluvial soils, farmed organically for 20 years. It underwent a 20-day maceration with just one pigeage (note A) before de-vatting. This has a very mineral-driven/slate-tinged bouquet that, thankfully, has sufficient fruit to back it up. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins, just a very subtle marmalade note complementing the red fruit and gentle grip on the finish. Excellent.  Drinking 2024 - 2031.  - Vinous 92

Note:  breaking up the thick layer of skins, stems and seeds that forms at the surface of fermenting red wine and submerging it during fermentation to extract color, tannins, flavor and aromas from the grape solids.

Winemaker Notes

This old vine Morgon from the highly regarded sector of Grand Cras has an earthy and energetic profile reflective of its rocky soils. There is a plushness and drinkability that gives early enjoyment, but the structure promises a few good years ahead.
