Now we enter the realm of Bouland’s spectacular, terroir-specific Morgons. This particular wine is the first of two cuvées that focus on Corcelette’s sandy, granitic soils. This soil generates wines of great perfume and finer, rounder tannins than those of Morgon’s more schist-influenced terroirs.
Like all Bouland’s wines this was whole-bunch fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in very old foudre (large cask). This is a superb start to what are five stunning Morgons. Of the quintet, this is the prettiest and, in some ways, the most accessible to drink. It’s packed with silky ripe plum, rose petal, geranium and blueberry fruit notes, and has a seamless structure that is incredibly seductive already. Wonderful balance and purity, this is simply gorgeous.
