One of the largest Beaujolais Cru, Morgon wines are characterised by their ripe cherry fruit flavours and fresh elegance. The Climat Les Charmes is one of the best known sites in the area and produces this smooth, medium bodied style with lots of ripe raspberry and cherry fruit notes on the nose and a tart, sweetly spiced palate. Pair this with medium spiced curries or soft cheeses such as the local Beaujolais Saint Marcellin or a crumbly feta.

Buy this if...you like a light, elegant red.

Charming by name, charming by nature - a smooth talking, cherry-fruited wonder.

The Producer

With a history going back over 300 years, Maison Jean Loron knows a thing or two about the production of top Beaujolais. The house is now owned by the 8th generation of the Loron family, Xavier Barbet, who in 2016 handed over the day to day running of the business to Philippe Bardet. Today the house owns 120 hectares of vineyards across seven of the Beaujolais Cru as well as owning and working with growers in the Maconnais region of southern Burgundy.

The Winemaker

Technical director Jean-Pierre Rodet oversees the winemaking for Maison Jean Loron, with winemakers Rémi Vincent and Denis Poyet focussing on the expression of the terroir and of the Chardonnay and Gamay grapes in the various crus and vineyard sites spread across the two regions. Jean-Pierre is himself a winemaking veteran, with thirty years’ service for Loron.

The Region

The Beaujolais region sits in the central eastern region of France, with Burgundy to the north and the city of Lyon to the south. It shares similarities to Burgundy in terms of climate and it’s a long thin band of vineyards bordered by hills to the west and river to the east but here the similarity ends. The region is characterised by dark granite soils and split between the generic Beaujolais and Beaujolais Villages wines, and the more serious Cru, of which there are ten.

Salami Pizza

The tomato sauce on the pizza needs a light-ish red, while the smoky, spiced meat needs a wine with lots of soft fruit. Beaujolais from Morgon fits the bill perfectly.

Duck Glazed with Plum & Soy

A Chinese-inspired duck dish with both fruity and savoury elements needs a smooth, fruity red - try unoaked styles with fresh flavours. The bright cherry notes of Morgon Les Charmes will work really well with this dish.

Cheesy Chilli Bacon Skewers

A great party food idea, theses more-ish snacks are packed with flavour and will cope well with an equally punchy, ripe red with spicy notes and soft tannins. Plump for Jean Loron's Morgon, a great party food match.
