Dominique Piron Morgon Côte du Puy 2021
Côte du Puy is a revered slope in Morgon, one of the celebrated cru of Beaujolais. The schist granite soils impart structure and depth to the Gamay grown here. This is true to form, with brooding dark fruit, firmness and persistence. But it’s not a monster, being medium bodied in weight. For serious Beaujolais, look no further.
Dominique Piron is a 14th generation wine grower who is one of the architects of the revival of Morgon, and Beaujolais being taken seriously. He focuses on producing wines that express the terroir of the six cru Beaujolais he grows.
