Domaine de Javernière – Morgon 2019 750mL 2019: 92 Pts - James Suckling
Gamay from Beaujolais, Burgundy, France
Harvesting of this wine is done manually in whole bunches from a 24.7 acre south facing plot where the vines are 50 years and older and configured in the traditional Gobelet system. They are de- stemmed and only the best bunches move to vinification. Malolactic fermentation takes place after pumping-over is conducted. The wine sees no oak and is aged in stainless steel tanks.
Morgon comes from a special terroir made up of decomposed rock and friable schist, and is without doubt the most typical of the ten Beaujolais "crus". Its "terroir" taste becomes more intense over time. In 1985, Hervé Lacoque moved to this domain, which was founded five generations previously. They have a long-standing relationship with Les Vins Georges Duboeuf.
This wine is best served with marinated pork ribs, aged cheeses and spicy dishes.
