Frederic Sornin Morgon Charmes 2019
This is made by domaine Frédéric Sornin, where the eponymous winemaker and his son Victor run a tiny group of vineyards and make inspiring, refreshing wines. They work entirely naturally, using ambient yeast and little to no sulfur at bottling.
This Morgon is a slightly more rich, dense example of Beaujolais, contrasted with the family's "Victor Sornin Beaujolais-Villages" wine. It has a classic core of ripe cherry fruit and a wonderful note of turned earth complemented by fresh violets and a just-grippy-enough-without-being-tannic texture. It's the perfect roast chicken wine, don't @ me.
