This wine is a blend made from three vineyards within the appellation of Morgon: Côte du Py, Bellevue and Roche Noire. They are planted on pink granite or diorite: the blue rock landmark of Côte du Py. The depth and alteration of these soils vary from one vineyard to another. This Morgon individual character originates from the rich volcanic soils on which it grows. Although firm and powerful, the tannins show the Gamay typical suppleness. This deep wine with violet aromas will perfectly match all sorts of dishes with great personality.
Notions of cherries, berry compote, sweet soil tones and smoke introduce the 2020 Morgon, a medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy wine with lively acids, melting tannins and a saline finish. As usual, it's derived largely from Corcelette, which accounts for its rather charming profile.
The 2019 Morgon unwinds in the glass with notes of sweet berry fruit, plums, spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and enveloping, with lively acids and supple, powdery tannins, it's especially seamless and charming this year. Derived largely from Corcelette but including some Côte du Py fruit, it was matured half in concrete, half in used barrels.
