What importer Bowler Wine has to say about this wine...
100% Gamay. Montpelain is a lieu-dit in the extreme east-northeast corner of Morgon in the larger climat of Douby, not far from Fleurie. Desvignes used to include it in their entry-level "La Voûte Saint-Vincent", but its strong old-vine character warranted its separation starting in 2017. Their 0.75-hectare plot of 80-year-old vines sits on silty soils of sand and clay; as a side note, La Voûte emerged as more fine and fruit-forward with the removal of the more structured, robust Montpelain fruit.
