Morgon is located between Régnié and Chiroubles, in the heart of the zone encompassing the Crus of Beaujolais. The type of soil in Morgon is unique: rotten stone (pierre pourrie) and crumbling schists, which perhaps explains why this Cru is so different from the others in terms of taste and longevity. As elsewhere in Beaujolais, the grape variety used is the Gamay. The type of pruning is called gobelet, different from the Guyot system used in the Côte dOr for Pinot Noir. Morgon is a fleshy and well-structured wine, with a marked fullness on the palate. It is also reputed to be the longest ageing Cru of Beaujolais.
