2011  Chateau Granges Cochard Morgon Charmes

Rating: 90 
Drink 2016 - 2025

The 2011 Morgon Charmes is entirely de-stemmed and is aged in oak barrels. It has a more sensual bouquet compared to the Vieilles Vignes, the oak lending it more intensity and nudging toward, say, more Pommard in style. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded and smooth texture, well-judged acidity, quite sumptuous tannins and a touch of cracked black pepper toward the finish. There is good weight in the mouth here – a Morgon tipping its hat toward the Cote de Beaune. Drink 2016-2025. This estate, owned by James and Sarah Wilding, who swapped sunny St. Albans for Beaujolais (not a bad exchange in my book), debuted Domaine Grange Cochard in 2009. Their holdings include six hectares of vines with 1.5 hectares in Cote du Py, much of the vine stock between 40 and 100 years old. No known US importer, but available through Berry Brothers & Rudd in the UK.

2011  Chateau Granges Cochard Morgon Vieilles Vignes

Drink 2015 - 2024

2011 Morgon Vieilles Vignes is matured in 3,000-litre oak foudres. It has a powerful, seductive bouquet of cranberry, mint and a touch of juniper – not a shy set of aromatics by a long shot! The palate is medium-bodied with juicy, ripe tannins and well-judged acidity. It flirts with being pushed too far, but fortunately does not cross the line. If you want a big, bold ‘n brassy Morgon with plenty of substance and aging ability, then this is a good place to come. Drink 2015-2024.
