Domaine de Javerniére Morgon Cote du Py 2018


Brilliant garnet color. It provides aromas of fresh black fruits, cherry and kirsch, along with the minerality that is typical of the Cote du Py terroir. Full-bodied, rich and structured in the mouth, it displays firm tannins and a persistent finish.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
Harvesting of this wine is done manually in whole bunches from a 24.7 acre south-facing plot where the vines are 50 years and older and configured in the traditional Gobelet system. They are de- stemmed and only the best bunches move to vinification. This wine undergoes frequent pumping over, with malolactic fermentation taking place in stainless steel tanks. The wine does not see any oak.

Interesting Fact
Morgon comes from a special terroir made up of decomposed rock and friable schist, and is without a doubt the most typical of the ten Beaujolais “Crus”. Its “terroir” taste becomes more intense over time. The vineyards are owned by the Lacoque family who have farmed this land for many years.

Serving Hints

This first-class wine pairs best with grilled meats, spicy foods and aged cheeses.
