Natalie's Score: 91/100
Franck and Cyrille Chavy are fourth-generation winemakers on this Morgon grand cru estate in Beaujolais, with their father Henri. The vines are planted in the "charmes" and "corcelette" climats. The wine undergoes a 6-12 day maceration to increase the intensity and complexity of flavour. Juicy and mouth-watering with blackberries and a pleasantly long finish. Surprisingly full-bodied for Beaujolais and the Gamay grape, but then again, the Morgon region is among the best of Beaujolais and capable of producing great wines like this one. Pair this with holiday turkey.
Food pairings: gourmet burgers, grilled game sausages, vegetarian pizza.
Terrific Turkey Wine

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Morgon is probably the best known of the Beaujolais cru villages; up in the northern part of the region. It is known for being more full flavoured than the other crus and having enough structure to last a long time. Beaujolais is always 100% Gamay Noir. Old Morgon is something truly special. Keep this guy back five years and watch the magic. This is really good Gamay - fresh and fruity.
Dark purple, with a ruby/pink rim.
Nervy and full of energy. Raspberry, vanilla, damson, fresh blackberry, pulverized rock dust, and violet.
Flavours of raspberry, blackberry, and tons of mineral grip. Probably partial carbonic or whole cluster fermented, though sometimes this producer ferments Gamay like Pinot Noir would be North of Beauj, in Burgundy. Ageable for a few years (5-7).
Put this with roasted duck, leek soup, or assorted grilled veggies and brie.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A gorgeous specimen of Beaujolais. Young, grippy tannins, still developing when tasted in May 2017. Bitter chocolate, blueberry, blackberry. Pair with grilled chicken. 90 points. BespokeTastings
|Georges Duboeuf Domaine Mont Chavy 2014 is great value under $20. Franck and Cyrille Chavy are fourth-generation winemakers on this Morgon Grand Cru estate in Beaujolais, with their father Henri. The vines are planted in the "charmes" and "corcelette" climats. Wine grapes for the Domaine Mont Chavy was cropped at 45 hectoliters per hectare this year. Look for ripe and rich red cherries, lemon and floral flavours on this spicy Gamay. - Community Wine Reviews|
