Jean Marc Burgaud is one of only eight winemakers in Beaujolais rated five stars by Robert Parker Jnr’s Wine Buyer’s Guide. Wine Advocate expert David Schildknecht says: “Burgaud is ensconced in an impressive new facility and as usual brimming with ideas about how he is going to make what are among his region’s handful of most exciting wines even better.” Serena Sutcliffe MW adds her endorsement to Burgaud’s work: “This young grower makes old-vine Beaujolais as if it were Burgundy, oak-aged and built for the long haul.”

The 2013 Morgon Grands Cras comes from the south part of Morgon on clay-rich soils, the vines averaging 55 years. Matured in vat for 8 months after a semi-carbonic maceration, it has a mineral-driven bouquet with dark plum, raspberry leaf and cranberry scents following through after. The palate is medium-bodied, the tannin a little fleshier and suppler than the les Charmes, but it attenuates a little toward the finish though I was expecting it to fan out. Give this Morgon another year in bottle. Drink 2017-2027. Rating: 90+ Points; Neal Martin; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
