Morgon Grands Cras 2020

The plot, situated ideally at the foot of Côte du Py, is one of the famous climates of the appellation. Grands Cras have the potential to be among the best and have outstanding power. The nose is intense with a subtle floral mix. In the mouth it offers a clear and frank taste of ripe fruits, a good length with a floral side. The tannins confirm its qualities as a wine for ageing.
