Peter Maude Fine Wines

2020, Domaine de Bel Air, MORGON "Les Charmes"


50 yr old vines growing in crushed rock made up of old iron oxide and manganese sediments. Deep ruby and long lived style. Concentrated and detailed this is a delicious and very fine, rounded style.

Deep ruby colour. Épicé et fumé (pleasing spicy and smoky nose). Rich boysenberries and red currants on the attack, more spice with underlying mineral structure apparent. Fresh and well-balanced, round though tannins still to smooth out a little on the finish. Classic and delicious.

Deep rich and purple, with creamy earthy tones on the nose. Rich fruit too - with a touch of spice. Some intense raspberry on the palate with forest undertones. Very well structured (firmer than the Fleurie). A juicy and long finish. ****1/2 JK
