Description: In the heart of the Crus area of Beaujolais, wines of the “Morgon” AOC are often described as best representing the character of their terroir. The appellation is dominated by a hill called Mont du Py. Its soil of decomposed schist gives typical aromas to the wines. Chauvet’s Morgon Côte du Py is produced on this hill peaking at 300m above sea-level. The selected parcels are very sunny on south-oriented steep slopes.
Tasting Notes: Deep ruby in color, this wine offers a complex nose, minerally and fruity. It mingles aromas of ripe raspberry, black and morello cherries with hints of flint, ink, clove and black pepper. The highly vibrant palate has a sound underlying structure which is powerful yet velvety, thanks to tannins which despite mellowing, are still very perceptible. This is a stylish wine bearing the hallmarks of its terroir with a long and spicy finish.
