Tasting Notes

"The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py derives from both higher-altitude and lower-lying parcels, and it is a great success this year, offering up a lovely bouquet of dark fruits, cherries, smoked meat and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and layered, with a fleshy and concentrated core, fine girdling tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a long and sapid finish."

The Producer

Jean-Marc Burgaud

Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud began in 1989 and has slowly explanded to 19 hectares of vines; 13 hectares in the Beaujolais cru Morgon, 1 hectare of vines planted in the cru Régnié, and 5 hectares in Beaujolais Villages. Of the 13 hectares in Morgon, 8 hectares of vines lie on the hillside of Côte de Py where the youngest vines still average over 50 years in age. Before founding his domaine, Jean-Marc obtained his diploma in oenology and winegrowing, but his teaching began long before that. Born into a family of generations of wine growers, Jean-Marc learned the importance of working the vines by hand and traditional vinification techniques in the cellar by the age of 22.

In the vineyards, Jean-Marc follows the rhythm of the seasons, applies organic principles, and respects his family’s traditions when nurturing the vines. All vineyard work is done by hand and horse, the vines are densely planted and have been farmed using organic principles for over 10 years. He believes that to make a ‘grand vin’, the vigneron has to know his terroirs and how to farm to obtain the most beautiful grapes as possible and it is from this harmony that ‘grandes bouteilles’ are born.
