Jean-Paul Thévenet Morgon Tradition 2022
Cherry, raspberry, plenty of dried rose and musk perfume, a little damp earthiness with it. It’s steely, but maybe a more fleshy sweeter red fruited expression, cherry pip, poached strawberry, fine stony tannin, soft acidity, and a musky and spicy finish of good length.
