  • Morgon

    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.

  • Moulin à Vent

    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.
