Other Reviews....
Brilliant violet. A powerful, mineral-accented bouquet evokes ripe red/dark berries, potpourri and allspice, and a floral nuance builds in the glass. Bright, sappy and appealingly sweet, offering concentrated black raspberry, boysenberry and violet pastille flavors that tighten up slowly with aeration. Shows impressive depth as well as energy and closes smooth, mineral and very long, leaving a sexy floral note behind.

A bright and fun red with granite and dark-berry aromas as well as dried strawberries. Medium-bodied, fresh and clean. Hints of citrus underneath. Drink now.

Aromas of cherries and strawberries mingle with hints of licorice and spices, introducing the 2017 Morgon Corcelette, a medium to full-bodied, layered wine that's fleshy and gourmand, with ripe acids and a generous core of fruit but displays a firmer chassis of powdery tannin than the Eponym this year. It was hit hard by hail, but Foillard has crafted a terrific wine all the same.
