Overall Experience

I suggest letting this Belles Grives Morgon breathe a while before drinking as it took a while for the real flavor profile to come out. I thought this was an enjoyable Beaujolais with just enough fruit and non-fruit flavor components to keep the mind at work. The earthiness is definitely something I enjoy in wine, so if that’s your style, this would be a good one for you.

This Belles Grives Morgon is smooth, with intoxicating scents of cassis, plum, violet and rose. The palate is filled with sweet, revealing waves of red fruit. Subtle, and hints at a beautiful maturity.
