Rich and spiced, with exuberant black cherry, violet, blackberry, licorice and star anise notes. Lightly grippy and balanced, with a bright finish. Drink now through 2015. 20,000 cases made.

Loaded with fresh red raspberry and sour cherry. A snappy suggestion of apple as well as this wine’s juxtaposition of subtle creaminess with refreshment put one a bit in mind of a white wine. Energy and purity of fruit go a long way toward profound satisfaction even if the wine itself is not terribly complex. Enjoy it over the next 18-24 months.
88 Points Wine Advocate
Technically this is one of the Cru Beaujolais—there are nine others— but there the definition ends! Brun produces delighful but serious wines. The 2011 Morgon shows raspberry and blackberry aromas wich are supported by smoke, minerals, flowers and some spice. Medium-bodied with enough dark fruits to make this way beyond Beaujolais.
