Wine of the Month (while supplies last):
Julien Sunier Gamay Noir Morgon, France 2012
This month’s wine comes from a top French growing region classified as “Cru Beaujolais.”
If you love Pinot Noir but have never tried a good Beaujolais, give this wine a chance—I promise you will be hooked. Grown in granitic soils, this Sunier Morgon puts many higher priced Burgundies to shame. The aromatics show fresh black cherry, ripe strawberry, and cranberry along with earthy notes of wet leaves, rose petals and crushed granite. The palate is rich and concentrated, the finish is long and complex.
