This wine is truly exceptional and a real treat for any wine aficionado. The vineyards are located in one of the most renowned areas of Morgon, the ‘Côtes de Py’, which is actually an extinct volcano, with soils of schist and granite. The wine has a wonderful purity and freshness along with expression and personality. The fruit is sourced from 60-year-old vines, yields are kept to an absolute minimum and the wine is bottled without the use of sulphur. On top of this, the wine is also bottled unfiltered and unfined, which helps to maximize both the intensity and complexity. A fragrant nose of wild strawberries, candied cherries and earthy, mineral undertones lead onto the silky and sumptuous palate. Although it is absolutely delicious in its youth, with its silky mouthfeel and gentle structure, this wine will develop over time and continue to intrigue and impress for 5-6 years or maybe even more. An extraordinary and compelling Morgon.
