WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING
“Aromas of smoky plums, pomegranate, cassis, grilled meat and spring flowers introduce the 2016 Morgon Côte du Py James, a full-bodied, ample wine with more mid-palate amplitude and firm structuring tannin than the Javernières bottling this year. There's a lot of concentration and substance to this Morgon, but it will demand some bottle age to melt away.” 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.
