Winemaker's Notes:

The second largest cru after Brouilly lies in one village only. Here, Gamay produces generous, robust wines which are fruit-forward with notes of cherry, kirsch and apricot. With a good cellaring potential Morgon comes close to a Burgundian Pinot Noir.

The bouquet of the Morgon 2009 is a veritable basket of fruits with delicious aromas of cassis and mostly currant. Nice balance; the tannins are round, supple and mellow. On tasting, the aromas revealed in the bouquet reappear with intensity. Lovely length.

About Henry Fessy:

Maison Henry Fessy today counts 75 acres under vine scattered throughout the Beau-jolais Cru and Villages appellations, 98% of which is planted with Gamay. The winery entirely redesigned in 2003 and was subsequently purchased by Maison Louis Latour in the winter of 2008. Henry Fessy's wines are exported to 35 countries and are among the best-selling Beaujolas Crus in Paris, the City of Lights! We hope you enjoy the tasting.
