Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Morgon is considered the most 'masculine' of the Grand Cras. This Beaujloais supports that theory. Pale ruby, medium body and youthful. Delicious red cherry, strawberry, black pepper, cinnamon, violets, vanilla and cedar. A feast for the nose. The palate delivers a little tartness with cranberry. Black earth is also evident. Medium grippy, tannins . The finish is long and warm. Made to be enjoyed now. Excellent value at $17.95

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
