This is very linear. Graphite and slate undertones. Medium-bodied, tight and focused with ultra-fine tannins. Gorgeous finish.
Deep lurid magenta. Cherry liqueur, dark berry, vanilla and woodsmoke qualities on the deeply perfumed nose. Smooth, broad and fleshy on the palate, offering sweet black/blue fruit and spicecake flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Sneaky, harmonious tannins add gentle grip to the impressively long, energetic finish, which features lingering bitter cherry, allspice and mineral notes. (JR)
Cyril Chirouze blends this wine from a range of parcels, tapping the domaine’s 87.5 acres in Morgon. It’s a complex wine that stands up to the time it spent in oak barrels, gaining spice and supple textures from that aging without having lost any of its tannic power or its stemmy, stony, deep fruit character. This needs a steak if you open it now; if you don’t, it will continue to develop in bottle.
This flagship estate, owned by Beaune negociant Louis Jadot, has produced a wine with great intensity and structure. Partly wood aged, the blend of three vineyards is rich although with a strong streak of freshness and acidity. That, along with the tannins, suggests it could age. It will be better from late 2019.

Fresh and concentrated, with a supple profile boasting cherry compote, raspberry-infused tea and marjoram notes that are seamless and charming. Undertones of violet, mocha and mineral gain traction on the long finish. (GS)
The 2016 Morgon from Château des Jacques is a fine, young bottle. The bouquet is bright and promising, offering up scents of cranberry, cherry, pomegranate, fresh herb tones, bonfire, a bit of gamebird and a good base of stony soil elements. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and still youthfully tangy, with good, but not great ripeness, moderate tannins and fine length and grip on the well-balanced finish. This is approachable today, but it is still fairly tight and will be more relaxed and generous on the palate with three or four years in the cellar. It will age long and gracefully.
