A full-bodied, powerful and meaty wine, Morgon features ripe cherry, peach, apricot and plum aromas and a deep garnet color.
The soil in Morgon is rich in iron oxide with traces of manganese and volcanic rock. The Cru has six different vineyards that divide the area into three bands that face south, southeast and northwest, each producing very different styles of wine. In all, 250 producers found across 4.5 square miles make 7.3 million bottles a year.
Morgon is the second largest Cru after Brouilly. It is named after the local hamlet of Morgon, which is in the center of the area and borders the village of Villié-Morgon.
