Don’t miss this gorgeous Jean-Marc Burgaud 2020 Morgon Grand Cras: a great wine, hailed by the critics, and selected by 3 Michelin Star Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester, among others: case of 12 bottles delivered


This gorgeous Morgon is on the wine list at the 3 Michelin Star Alain Ducasse Restaurant at the Dorchester—and it’s easy to see why. It’s magnificent! Jean-Marc Burgaud is unquestionably one of Beaujolais’ finest producers, and not only is his 2020 Morgon Grand Cras the best Morgon you will find, it wins particularly high praise and top marks across the critics and connoisseurs. Here’s what just some of them say:

Stuart Pigott, Beaujolais: The Taste of the Future and More Great Discoveries, tasted April 14, 2022:
‘The explosive forest-berry nose drags you into this very concentrated Morgon. Enormous mineral freshness drives this sleek and expressive wine through the long and very focused finish. Still very young, though exciting right now. 95 points.’

Neal Martin, Back For More Beaujolais?, 26 August 2021: ‘The 2020 Morgon Grands Cras comes from the southern part of the appellation, on the limit with Brouilly and Régnié, and was bottled two weeks prior to my visit. Perhaps because of that, the nose needed time to settle, although the palate is more expressive, fresh and tensile, with saturated tannins, a superb line of acidity and an edgy, mineral-driven finish. Tuck this away in a cellar for three or four years if you know what’s good for you. 93 points.’

William Kelley: Recent & Forthcoming Releases from the Beaujolais Wine Advocate, 19 August 2021:
‘Aromas of cherries, wild berries, rose petals and liquorice introduce the 2020 Morgon Grand Cras, a medium- to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping wine that’s deep and layered. Built around bright acids and melting tannins, it’s ample but precise, concluding with a long, expansive finish. This is a particular success chez Burgaud this year. 93 points.’
