Julien Sunier Morgon 2019

Checking local availability

I really like the style and grace of Julien Sunierss example of Morgon. It is one of his finest examples from these fifty-plus year-old vines (half of which lie in la Corcelette). The bouquet here is beautifully red fruity in personality and nicely reserved, offering up scents of cherries, strawberries, pomegranate, rose petals, a touch of allspice, lovely soil tones, thyme and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is young, tangy and full- bodied, with a fine core of fruit, excellent backend minerality, well-integrated tannins and a long, vibrant and still quite tightly-knit finish. This sense of reserve out of the blocks is fairly rare in the vintage and, to my palate, really augurs well for this winess long future ahead of it. Give it a few years to unwind structurally in the cellar, as this has impressive acidity for the vintage, and then drink it over the ensuing thirty-plus years. 2023-2055. -John Gilman
