There's great fruit here, raspberries and pomegranates, a traditional, rustic, spicy nose, stony freshness from the schist soil, and a refreshing acidity. Eighty-year-old vines give this Guy some muscle, too.
Delicately laced flavors of cherry, peach and currant are accented by rose water, tea and anise notes in this light-bodied red. Undertones of mineral gain traction on the spicy finish. Light tannins. Drink now through 2025.
Scents of raspberries and cherries mix with notes of violets and candied peel in an inviting bouquet introducing Breton's 2018 Morgon Vieilles Vignes, a medium to full-bodied, satiny wine with a touch more structure and more carnal nuances, too. It saw eight months in used barrels.
