Jean Jacques Morel is one of the gentlest and kindest souls in the wine world. Alongside being one hell of a gentleman, he's a brilliant winemaker, and has held the title of Burgundy's smallest (in land) vigneron for a long time. He came to Australia to show his wines at Rootstock Sydney festival and on a visit to the Adelaide Hills, fell in love with the place and, in a huge benefit to us, now makes wine there. Wonderful.
Utilising a grape he is very familiar with, this tastes and smells riper and richer than his home (France) wines but has the same suede texture, lightness of tannins and bright acidity. It's a succulent red of dry, spice and sour cherry characters, vibrancy and freshness. A beauty.
