Surface: 1 101 hectares
Production in 2018: 60 164 hectolitres / approx. 8 000 000 bottles
Soils: Morgon extends over a large area, second only in size to Brouilly, which explains the wide diversity of its soils. Its three principal terroirs encompass
granite soils on the hillsides from Villié-Morgon to Corcelette and St Joseph, seams of “blue stone” on the summit and the eastern slopes of the Côte du Py giving way progressively to the foothills with their ancient alluvial soils, and finally a curious ‘path’ of clay blocks covers the granite and winds its way along the ridgeway between Morcille and Douby.
Attributes: Finesse and delicacy
Aspect: Garnet red
Nose: Ripe stone fruit
Palate: Full bodied, rich, powerful, structured
Characteristics: Dominated by the Mont du Py, this is the most sprawling of the Crus. The famous Côte du Py is composed of disintegrated slate. The wines offer aromas of stone fruits such as black cherry with notes of violet and kirsch. Their fine and elegant tannins augur excellent ageing potential.
Surface: 637 hectares
Production in 2018: 31 485 hectolitres / approx. 4 000 000 bottles
Soils: This Cru is implanted largely on soils of pink granite with hills of gentler contours due to its medium altitude. The vines thrive on these moderate slopes of evolved granite.
Attributes: A wine of personality and prestige
Aspect: Deep ruby red with dark garnet gleams
Nose: Blackcurrant, liquorice, faded rose and ripe fruits
Palate: Full bodied and complex
Characteristics: Standing at 278 metres surrounded by vineyards, the windmill (Moulin), a classified historic monument, embodies the prestige and the pride
of this appellation. Straddling two communes, it benefits from a homogenous terroir. With good tannins and lots of body, this is uncontestably a wine for laying down (up to 10 years depending on the vintage), developing aromas of iris, faded roses, spices and ripe fruits with notes of underwood and truffles. In its youth it offers floral and fruity aromas of violet and cherry.
Chiroubles... This Beaujolais wine with the unusual name owes its ruby red robe and floral tones to the expertise of 80 wine growers, who look after their vine plants every single day. Chiroubles vines grow at between 250 and 450 meters above sea level and are bathed daily in sunshine, which gives them the delicious taste that is instantly recognizable.
