WINE OF THE WEEK: Domaine Lagneau Morgon Vieilles Vignes 2014, France



£13.50, Cadman Fine Wines

I was going to recommend a Rioja from Cadman Fine Wines this week, but I tasted this Morgon on Saturday at a Wine Gang Festival and was bowled over. Along with Moulin-à-Vent, Morgon is the village that produces the deepest, most Burgundian of Beaujolais wines and the Lagneau family has the advantage of a small parcel of 60-year-old vines for this particular wine. It has an alluring perfume of violets and cherries, dark, rich fruit and hints of spice and minerals. Beaujolais is one of the most food-friendly of reds but, to give a few ideas, you could drink it with duck, carpaccio, cheeses, baked aubergine, spicy sausages or calves’ liver. If you can resist it now and have a cellar, you could also age it for five or six years.
