 2013 Domaine de Colonat 'Vigne Centenaire' Morgon, Gamay

The wines of Morgon are built to last, and the Collonges' small plot of 100 year old vines in Morgon is the source for this, their finest wine. 100 years have endowed these Gamay berries with show-stopping concentration and depth that renders a wine that smells like fresh cherry juice, freesia flowers, and sandalwood. Dangerously easy to drink.

Christine and Bernard Collonge were fresh-faced twenty-somethings when they took over the Collonge family holdings in the Beaujolais town of VilliƩ-Morgon in 1977. Today their son Thomas assists them in the production of their stellar lineup of cru Beaujolais.

A word about cru Beaujolais. The 10 designated "cru" villages of Beaujolais [of which Morgon is one, since 1936] are the finest, best-drained, highest-altitude sites in the region. Cru is to "regular" Beaujolais what Mercedes-Benz is to Kia. Cru wines are typically vinified like red burgundy, and raised in large neutral oak casks. These are not the light, bubble-gummy, skinny wines made carelessly from shamefully big crop loads. They are serious, complex, age-worthy reds for connoisseurs.
