In the heart of the Crus area of Beaujolais, wines of “Morgon” AOC are often described as best representing the character of their terroir. The appellation is dominated by a hill called Mont du Py. Its soil of decomposed schist gives typical aromas to the wines. Morgon Côte du Py is produced on this hill peaking at 300 meters above sea level. These selected parcels are very sunny, on south-oriented steep slopes.
This wine is deep ruby in color, with a complex nose of mineral and fruit aromas. It mingles ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper. The vibrant palate is powerful yet velvety. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.
