Let's start with a small fact most forget about Beaujolais, it is actually part of Burgundy. It is considered the southern most point of Burgundy, even though it is technically in the Rhone department. Just as Burgundy's Cote d'Or has it's Grand Cru vineyards, Beaujolais has Crus as well. Ten of them to be exact and today we are looking at the Cru of Morgon. 

Each Cru has their own traits and reasons behind these traits. With Morgon it is fairly simple to find what makes the region so special; a full body with pronounced minerality in the wine.

The cause is equally as simple; blue granite rock that lies beneath the thin topsoil of the vineyards. The decomposing granite and schist soil impart these mineral flavors into the wine. 

This particular wine has a bit fuller body when compared to even other Morgon Crus, the reason being is the Cote du Py. This hill has southern facing slopes that aid in fully ripening the Gamay grapes to give us the lush body this wine holds. As they say, location location location. 


Reviews:

"From one of the top producers in Morgon, this bottling combines great terroir and old vines to give a wine that has so much structure. The dry core is still keeping the fruit in check, waiting to let it burst out in blackberry glory. Let this wine age and drink from 2022. - ROGER VOSS"
