Morgon 2019 by Domaine Mathieu and Camille Lapierre: My Review

It's my first time to drink Beaujolais and I'm trying to recall where I first encountered it in a song. Google to the rescue! It was Barry Manilow's song, No Other Love. That was the first time I heard it and I always wondered what it tastes like. 


A light and refreshing Cru Beaujolais red wine is perfect for a warm sunny Friday afternoon. If you want a light and refreshing wine (which is usually associated with whites) but are in the mood for a red, go for a Cru Beaujolais red wine. It's best served cold, unlike other red wines.

Morgon 2019 came from a Beaujolais Cru, which is not an ordinary Beaujolais vineyard. A Beaujolais Cru can label the wine by the Cru name only. In this case, they call it Morgon, instead of Beaujolais.

Wine: Morgon 2019 by Domaine Marcel Lapierre 

My Review: 

Leather on the nose. Maraschino Cherry and raspberry flavor. Soft tannins. Very light and refreshing. Perfect for a warm day. If you want a light and refreshing wine (which is usually associated with whites) but are in the mood for a red, go for this Beaujolais. Best served cold, unlike other red wines. All the different flavor of fruit surfaces when it's cold.
