Morgon Domaine Julien Sunier 2019 (750ML)
96 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "What a deep, complex nose this has! It’s like looking into the abyss, yet it’s also somehow delightful. The subtle red-fruit, mineral and earthy notes are beautifully interwoven. And after you’ve taken all that in, you realize how concentrated and precisely balanced this Morgon masterpiece is! From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 11/21
93 Points, John Gilman, View from the Cellar: "The bouquet here is beautifully red fruity in personality and nicely reserved for a 2019, 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."
93 Points, Natalie Earl, Decanter: "This wine is extremely characterful. Some initial reduction transforms into alluring spiciness alongside jolly strawberry fruit and blackberries and currants rolled in cinnamon and pepper. This effortlessly treads the tightrope between playful fruity top notes and a deeper, brooding undertone. Serious and intense, dark and stony, with a flutter of herbaceousness. The wine is made with zero filtration, indigenous yeasts and a tiny amount of sulphur at bottling. (Drink between 2020-2023)" 12/20
