Tasting Notes
Deep ruby in color, this wine offers a complex nose, minerally and fruity. It mingles aromas of ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper. The highly vibrant palate has a sound underlying structure which is powerful yet velvety, thanks to tannins which despite mellowing, are still very perceptible. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.

Vinification
The grapes are partly destemmed and macerated for 12-14 days. Aging takes place in cement tanks, with no fining and light filtration. Age of vines
55 years on average

Description

Description
In the heart of the Crus area of Beaujolais, wines of the “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. Chauvet’s Morgon Côte du Py is produced on this hill peaking at 300m above sea-level. The selected parcels are very sunny on south-oriented steep slopes.
Estate
Mr. Chauvet was a well-respected winemaker in the 1970’s, who shared his expertise and knowledge with other winemakers in the Beaujolais and Mâconnais regions in the southernmost part of Burgundy. After he passed away, his passion and craft are being carried on by the next generation of dedicated winemakers.
