When a wine review for one of our Milligan Selections bottles reads, “This is a beauty,” and “Outstanding Gamay,” you know you’re in for an unforgettable treat. Top if off with an Under $20 price tag and you’re good to go.
A loved wine by many at holiday meals, Pizay Morgon is a wonderful option throughout the year. Pairing beautifully with glazed ham and roast turkey, it’s a natural crowd-please at Easter dinner, and it’s also been quite popular chilled in late spring in summer (see Departures Magazine’s article on chilled reds.)
Enjoy a combination of “earth & spice” with lifted notes of “rhubarb and beets, and soft notes of powdered strawberry, plum & cocoa.” Roger Voss shared. “This is a serious young wine with a lot of potential.”
Departures highlights Pizay Morgon’s enticing aromas of fresh cherries, wild strawberries, and hints of cherry pastry creme, plus its “punchy flavors of cranberries, raspberries, tart red cherries, rhubarb, and scrubby herbs, framed with a hint of blood orange.” What a juicy mouthful reminiscent of a Smuckers-y jam that’s lip-smacking delicious and leads to bottles being emptied in no time flat (so stock up on this Milligan Selections bottle when you’re hosting with this wine!)
Pizay Morgon also pairs beautifully with grilled red and white meats, perfect for outdoor entertaining on the deck, patio or yard.
Congratulations to Château de Pizay on making this delicious Gamay, and cheers to sunshine, firing up the grill and light spring reds!
