WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
"The 2019 Morgon Grand Cras offers up a rich bouquet of licorice, blackberries and cherries, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping palate built around ripe, powdery tannins and succulent acids. Derived from 55-year-old vines planted in clay-rich alluvial soils, it saw 12 days of maceration followed by 10 months of élevage in cement tank." 92 points, William Kelley, Robert Parker's 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.
From: France, Morgon
