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.

"The 2020 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is brilliant, unwinding in the glass with aromas of wild berries, spices, rose petals, loamy soil and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with impressive reserves of ripe tannin and sapid fruit, it's seamless and lively, concluding with a long, resonant finish. As ever, this is built to age, and it will reward patience, even if its youthful charms are considerable." -Robert Parker

What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...

100% Gamay. 2020 was the first vintage of "L'Aube à Javernières" and the first Desvignes wine to not be 100% cru Morgon. The .84-hectare parcel of 20-30-year-old, certified-organic vines grows in deep clay soils just outside the Morgon appellation on the edge of Javernières, which lies just below the Côte du Py hill. The bunches are harvested by hand and mainly left in whole clusters for a semi-carbonic fermentation in closed concrete vats. Maceration is around 10 days with a submerged cap and no punchdowns. A very small amount of sulfur is added after malo and sometimes at bottling. The wine is aged in concrete for 7-9 months and bottled with a light, non-sterile filtration.

Serviceable, if barely.

Perfectly serviceable for the purpose at hand (company holiday party) but wasn't particularly great. Would rather go for Lapierre.
