WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py James is showing beautifully, soaring from the glass with a deep and complex bouquet of violets, cassis and blackberries mingled with hints of cracked pepper and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, it's lively and beautifully balanced, built around powdery tannins and impressively lively acids, and concludes with a long, penetrating finish." 95 points, 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.
