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.
What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...
100% Gamay. This bottling from the celebrated climat of Corcelette is the first Desvignes wine from sourced fruit. They harvest the fruit by hand from a 0.8-hectare plot of 50-year-old vines on sandy pink granite soils on a south-facing slope (see the dark swatch on the gorgeous label) in the western part of Corcelette near the border of the climat of St. Joseph.
