This estate has been producing wine in Morgon since the 11th century. The wine comes from structured granite soil in a blend of different parcels. It has a strong mineral elements as well as layers of ripe black-cherry fruits. There is just a hint of banana that does spoil the full effect of the wine and hopefully will blow away as it ages. Drink from 2018.
