JOSEPH DROUHIN MORGON HOSPICES DE BELLEVILLE
In 2014, Maison Joseph Drouhin signed an exclusive partnership with the Hospices de Belleville, owner of 34 acres in the 3 crus of Fleurie, Brouilly and Morgon. Nowadays the Hospice is a museum, having opened its doors in 1773 as a charitable institution which cared for the sick from among the poorest members of society. Throughout its time as a Hospice, it benefitted from the generosity of benefactors, some of whom donated vineyards, hence the exceptional parcels in Beaujolais.
The colour is purple violet, this Morgon, already unveils its temperament by aromas of very ripe red fruits, spices and liquorice. The palate confirms a tannic structure, a little firm as yet, covered by balanced and fruity flesh.
