The Pignard's Morgon Cuvée Tradition is simply superb in 2012. Good friends with Christian Ducroux, the Pignards practise similar methods of biodynamic farming and natural vinifications. Produced from steep hillside vineyards, the wine ferments naturally, with only 10mg of SO2 added and spends a year in vat followed by a year in old barriques. The 2012 vintage was a difficult one for the growers, resulting in very low yields, but producing beautiful wines with pure fruit, light to medium body and firm acidity. The wine shows bright raspberry and strawberry aromas that deepen with darker fruits, earth and roast meats. Very saline and mineral on the palate with complex berry fruits balanced by firm acidity. This is a superb Morgon of terroir that will benefit from decanting or five years in the cellar. Highly recommended! Tasted again after 3 days open, the wine has deepened with aromas of black cherry, mint and spice appearing, the palate shows blackberry, red-currant, licorice and spice infused with minerals in the long finish. Really superb!
