VERY LIMITED NEW RELEASE!!

"Some very stony and flinty aromas with graphite. Red and dark plums, too. Smells fresh and very complex already. The palate has great density and a fine, compressed tannin texture, as well as a very focused finish. Spiced black cherries and blackberries, cassis and dark chocolate to close. Short carbonic maceration and juice is racked off during the carbonic process. A captivatingly powerful but focused Morgon. No Côte du Puy due to the hail in 2017. Best from 2020." (JS)

Winery Notes

Located in Villié-Morgon, the vines are 45 years old in average and are extended on 11 hectares with 1 on “Côte du Py”.

- Cultivated with the “Organic” method, we are only undertaking (at the beginning of 2006) to do steps with certificating organizations.

- Furthermore, for 3 years, we are testing the bio dynamic on some lands of old vines.

- Since 2001, we are buying grapes on foot (hand harvest made by us) the harvesting of some good parcels of Morgon cultivated according to our ideal.
