This is a wine to keep, its character resulting from the soil composition (The cote du Py hillside near the tiny village of Morgon). This is the most typical wine of this appellation, thanks to its rich soil of blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. The Morgon Cote du Py is full bodied and tannic.
Located in the southernmost tip of the Burgundy region, Moulin-à-Vent was one of the first appellations awarded AOC status in 1936. Today, the estate encompasses 37 hectares (91.4 acres) of the appellation’s finest climats planted to Gamay Noir averaging 40 years in age. Since 2009, under the new ownership of the Parinet family, investment in the winemaking facilities and the vineyards has resulted in plot-specific signature wines expressing the individual characteristics of each exceptional terroir.
