Daniel produces this cuvée of Morgon from a single parcel in lieu-dit Bellevue where the soil is schist, and like Côte de Py, has a distinctive mineral quality and an elegance that comes out more and more with age. 

The 2018 Morgon Bellevue is a deep, inky, dark expression of Morgon. It opens with a twist of youthful reduction but nothing that a decant or time in the glass doesn't change. Then there are layers of black cherry and blackcurrants, peppery spice in the background and some serious, powdery yet very fine tannins. The finish is long and minerally.
