2017 Dominique Piron Beaujolais Morgon Aux Pierres - 92 PTS - JS

james suckling hq logo plain"This deep and powerful Morgon is just beginning to give its best. The spicy oak is there, but well integrated with the plum and blackberry fruit. Very good balance on the generous front palate, but at the back the richness makes a bold statement and the tannins just hold it in check. With a shade less ripeness this would be even more impressive. Drink or hold.
