Morgon, Cote du Py, Laurent Gauthier, 2018

Origin : The Cote du Py hill is the most prestigious terroir in Beaujolais. It is located in Morgon and its soil is composed of blue and grey granite in decomposition called schist or locally the “rotten rocks”.
Grape Variety: 100% Gamay Noir.
Farming: Estate certified Terra Vitis. Sustainable farming, putting straw in the vines, plowing of the soil
Tasting Notes: A dark red robe with garnet tints. A nose very complexe showing blackberries, roasted, smoky and tobacco notes. In the palate, the wine is very rich and elegant with fine and ripe tannins. An earthy finish marked with stone fruits notes.
Drink from 13°C.
” I do not hesitate to break my back to be closer to my vines, firmly rooted in soil rich in history and tradition. I like to adapt to the geology of my land, a bit like a painter with his palette of colors who projects his individuality through his work!”
Artisan Wine maker Mr Laurent Gauthier
