Ratings and Tasting Notes:
(RP=95+) The 2016 Morgon Cuv_e 3.14 is a beautiful wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with scents of rose petals, blood orange, sweet wild berries, smoked meats and some subtly reductive top notes that dissipate in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with a deeper and more reserved profile than Foillard's dramatic 2016 C_te du Py, underpinned by succulent acids and framed by powdery tannins. Right now, the gap between the two cuv_es isn't hugely pronounced, but I expect it to open up as time passes and the more concentrated but equally well-balanced 3.14 begins to unwind.
