Morgon Cotes de Py

This 100% Gamay red wine from Beaujolais (France) is made from “Côte de Py” - the great Morgon terroir that is found on a little hill with very shallow soil, to the south of the village of Villé-Morgon, covering around a hundred hectares. The foot of the hill that faces the rising sun is a truly singular terroir called “Javernières”, covering around fifteen hectares. Here the soil is a little deeper and more complex, enriched by a touch of clay and small granite stones, the vine's roots push deep into the soil to find the nutrients they need. Only a few winemakers vinify this terroir separately, which is easily recognizable when vatted. Morgon from “Javernières” develops an even more refined, finished, and deeper feel. The nose is filled with rich ripe dark berries, stone fruits, and a pleasant earthiness. It is medium-bodied, very smooth on the palate, and naturally suited to aging, though it can also be enjoyed from its first year after botting. Morgon Côtes de Py - Javenières by Domaine des Terres Dorées drinks well on its own or pairs with a rich braised beef stew, beef burgers, or juicy lamb. Available for deliveries within Metro Manila.

Grape Variety / Blend: Gamay

Winery

Beaujolais, France: Domaine des Terres Dorees

Jean-Paul Brun started Terres Dorées in 1979 with a mere 4 hectares of vines in Charnay in the southern Beaujolais, an area which is slightly warmer and more limestone-driven versus the more renowned granite-rich cru villages in the northern Beaujolais. Today, the Charnay estate is around 30 acres, but with an additional 15 hectares farmed in the crus. The farming in Charnay is organic and includes working of the soils; the cru parcels are farmed sustainably and the soils are not worked. Harvest is by hand and of well-ripened but not over-ripened fruit, so alcohol levels are generally modest.

Annual Terres Dorées production is around 350,000 bottles, 85-90% of it from estate fruit with the rest of it sourced. From the beginning, Jean-Paul carved a different path for himself in Beaujolais. Not only does he not chaptalize (common practice here), he has also always eschewed the relatively modern technique of carbonic maceration, in favor of traditional Burgundian vinification. He believes the fruit is best expressed by the grapes’ indigenous yeasts, rather than by adding industrial yeast. Brun’s view is that Beaujolais drinks best at a lower degree of alcohol and that there is no need to add sugar.
