Louis-Claude Desvignes

Louis-Claude Desvignes makes a ridiculously good Morgon. Actually, he makes six ridiculously good Morgons, including three from the famed Côte du Py.

These varied, exceptional terroirs gives him enough to play with, with nuances Desvignes is almost preternaturally adept at expressing – perhaps because his family has been making wine in Morgon since the 1700s.

The house style is not the easy, candied “carbonic” style favored by many in the region; like Fleurie’s Anne-Sophie Dubois, Desvignes prefers to express his terroir in a more classical, Burgundian approach, though he eschews oak for concrete.
