Morgon Côte du Py 2018

Stéphane Aviron

Terroir: The Morgon Côte du Py is Stéphane Aviron’s most structured, earthy wine, and can age wonderfully for as much as ten years. The grapes are sourced from the slopes of an 1150-foot inactive volcano that is regarded as one of the top terroirs in all of Beaujolais. Vines face due south on a well pitched hillside of pour sandy soil.

Vinification: Grapes are vinified separately until time for the final blending and bottling. The must is macerated in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for 12-15 days and then aged for 12 months in a combination of new and used oak casks.

Additional Information

Stephane Aviron’s Morgon Cote du Py is Burgundy in every way, witha striking resemblance to a 1er Cru Pinot Noir from the Cote de Nuits. This wine is sim-ply exceptional! The nose is elegant and layered with notes of earth and berry. The wine is rich and very structured with a healthy dose of crushed berry fruit leading to a firm, well structured finish.
