CHATEAU DE FUISSE MORGON "LES CHARMES" 2019
Country: France, Burgundy, Beaujolais
Grape Varieties: Gamay
Terroir: Morgon is one of the 10 crus of Beaujolais. The granite soils of the Les Charmes plateau provide a good and silky structure to this cru Beaujolais, accompanied by delicious flavours of black cherry and kirsch. 

Vinification: Grapes are hand-picked and very lightly crushed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation occurs for a period of about 10 days with daily punching down of the cap to extract additional colour, flavour and complexity. Following fermentation, the free-run juice is separated and the grapes are pressed, the wine is then reblended. Malolactic fermentation and ageing occur in 100% stainless steel.

Tasting Notes: Sweet, almost candy-like red cherry and kirsch aromas. Fun and fruity on the palate, yet well structured, with open ripe red berry and cherry flavours, racy acidity, and very soft tannins.

Food Pairing: This wine will be a great companion for charcuterie, game and red meats.

The Grape
Gamay
A French variety planted predominately in Beaujolais where it is the grape behind everything from light and often acidic Beaujolais Nouveau through to the more serious and well-structured wines from the 10 cru villages. It takes its name from a hamlet just outside Chassagne-Montrachet and was at one stage widely planted on the Côte d`Or. However it was gradually phased out due to its poor yield and supposed poor quality of its wines.

The majority of Gamay wines in Beaujolais are labelled as Beaujolais or Beaujolais-Villages and are deliciously juicy, easy drinking wines. Of more interest are the Cru wines from the 10 villages in the north of the region where the soil is predominantly granitic schist and where the vines are planted on gently undulating slopes. These can be well-structured, intensely perfumed wines, redolent of ripe black fruits and, while delicious young, will reward medium term cellaring.

Gamay is also grown in the Touraine region of the Loire where it produces soft, well-balanced, gluggable wines for drinking young.
