Grape Variety : Gamay
Soil : Granite
Site : The area of production is located on the hills above the village of Villié-Morgon. Morgon is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus.
The Vintage 2012 : After a very cold winter and a cold spring, the weather at the start of summer was quite demanding. It became fine again in the second half of August with hot temperatures. The harvest commenced early September under a bright sunshine. The combination of all those climatic factors has engendered a significant drop of the yields but quality is there. Meticulous vinifications have produced wines with very pure aromas and a very fresh structure.
Tasting : Bright purple colour. Intense aromas of ripe red berries mixed with spices. Well-structured and concentrated. Deep and dense with finely grained tannins. Robust aftertaste with spices nuances.
Food pairing : Cooked pork meat "Charcuterie", barbecue and all sorts of mild cheeses.
