  1. A type of red wine from the Beaujolais region. [from 19th c.]
    • 1987, Stuart Evans, Seasonal Tribal Feasts, p. 166:
      And so we went through the cold beef (Scottish forequarter spit-roasted) and chocolate mousse with a good Morgon and curacao.
    • 2001, John Fisher, The Evaluation of Wine, p. 198:
      Morgon is full-bodied and high in alcohol content (sometimes surpassing 14%), and has a little more tannin than the typical Beaujolais.
    • 2010, Victoria Moore, The Guardian, 10 Jul 2010:
      I like Morgon – powerful, dark and fleshy, with black rather than red fruit, it reminds me of walking into a deep cavern – and I think Julienas (masculine, earthy and granitic) and Chiroubles (the highest, and delicate, like birdsong) are under-rated.
