Sébastien Morin is a vigneron that falls into the no bullshit category of natural wine—one look at the labels will tell you as much. While Séb’s bottles are visually similar to the black type on white background minimalism of Steen’s—though not as market-y or cloying— Morin keeps a much more low profile. A former IT guy in Lyon, as well as an ex-assistant to the great J-M Brignot before he left France and dipped out to the north of Japan, Sébastien quietly works in the south of Beaujolais, producing structured Gamays of pure finesse, and even Viognier now—fruit purchased from a neighbor in the region, and vinified to tropical perfection. 2021 also sees his first ‘primeur’ style wine, bottled in November of that year, but tasting fruity, crunchy, and blissful now.
