- The Wine
A concentrated yet "round" Morgon Vieilles Vignes (80 years old).
This wine was known as Gravallon's Morgon Cuvée Vieilles Vignes but changed in 2009 to Morgon Cuvée Expression
Made from grapes grown on 80 year old vines with very low yields, producing wines with great concentration of flavours and aromas with an incredible roundness. The wine spends a year in large oak foudres (30 to 75 hectolitre casks). The bouquet intensifies as the wine matures and this wine really is best appreciated after some time in bottle, so a bit of patience is required.
Drink with red meats with rich sauces, or fine cheeses.

A food and wine wow moment for me.
Morgon Cuvée Expression Vielle Vignes
Supposedly one of the heavier Beaujolais cru - this was good to drink on its own being so smooth, but when accompanying roast lamb gave me my first "wow" food and wine pairing moment at home with such pure, concentrated and juicy fruit coming through. Lovely red fruit/berry nose and earthy to fruit ending in the mouth. For me great value.
Morgon Cuvée Expression Vielle Vignes 2007
Classy stuff, good Morgon structure. Not a hugely expressive wine but in fine form given the age
