Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 94
"Unfurling in the glass with a youthfully reserved nose of raspberries, wild plums, spices, white tea and rose petals, the 2019 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with real concentration, lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. Still quite tightly wound after its recent bottling—a matter of weeks before I tasted it—this will, as ever, merit several years in the cellar. At maturity, I suspect the 2019 will be more dynamic than the 2018 rendition, and it will delight admirers of serious cru Beaujolais."

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

100% Gamay. Desvignes has two hectares of vines averaging 35 years old in the historic Morgon lieu-dit of Javernières at the foot of the famous hill of the Côte du Py. The soils are much heavier and stickier with iron-rich red clay here versus the more schistous "rotten rock" up the Py hill. The exposure is also more easterly; the wines tend to be dense but soft and more red-toned and elegant versus the darker, more muscular, older-vine ones off of the Côte du Py. Viticulture and vinification are consistent across all Desvignes wines. The vines are certified-organic and harvested by hand. The clusters go through a semi-carbonic maceration in open-top concrete vats, with a maceration of 12-13 days with a submerged cap. A very small amount of sulfur is sometimes added after malo. The wine is aged in concrete tanks for about 9 months and bottled with a light, non-sterile filtration.
