WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

 “The 2017 Morgon Côte du Py James is also showing superbly from bottle, unwinding with a youthfully reticent nose of raspberries, plums, smoked meats and chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with considerable concentration and lively acids, displaying a more tight-knit, tensile profile than even the Javernières. This cuvée, derived from vines planted at the summit of the Côte du Py, will be Burgaud's longest-lived wine in the 2017 vintage.” William Kelley, Wine Advocate

OUR NOTES

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.
