Dominique Morel

The beginnings of the estate date back to the early 1900s. Mr Besson, Dominique Morel’s great-grandfather, moved to the town of Émeringes. Besson was the inventor of the first filter press, for which he won a bronze medal at the Concours Lépine in 1910. He set up a distillery and a cooperage near the small 2-hectare (5-acre) vineyard.Today, the estate extends over 18 hectares (nearly 45 acres) and produces 12 appellations.

Tasting Notes

A deep purple colour and almost black core, this wine has a serious side to it. Rich bubblegum and black fruit jam nose - slightly spicy with a touch of herbs and cayenne. Long finish - very nice and not too soft.

Food Matches

A lovely match with white meats, pigeon, fish or fresh goat's cheese.
