Jean-Marc Burgaud - Morgon - Cote du Py - 2019 - 750 ml
WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“ The 2019 Morgon Côte du Py has turned out beautifully, delivering an inviting nose of smoky black cherries, cassis and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it's deep and concentrated, with a fleshy core of fruit underpinned by tangy acids. This is another of Burgaud's real successes this year.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate
Jean-Marc Burgaud is based in Villie-Morgon, in the heart of the most celebrated of the crus. He began working here in 1989, when he had a hectare each in Beaujolais Villages, Regine and Morgon. Now he's got 17.5 hectares, with 4.5 ha in Beaujolais Villages, a hectare in Regnie, and the rest in Morgon, including a sizeable 8 hectares of Côte du Py.
Burgaud’s wines are quite structured and yet they avoid being overpowering or too extracted. He works in quite a reductive way which sets up the wines nicely for some ageing.
