2009 MORGON, Côtes du Py, Vieilles Vignes, Burgaud. Beaujolais (Magnum)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

From Burgaud’s website:
“This is a wine to keep; its character resulting from the soil composition (The Cote du Py hillside near the tiny village of Morgon).This is the most typical wine of this appellation, thanks to its rich soil of blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. The Morgon Côte du Py is full bodied and tannic. A wine to keep. The long maceration of the whole grape results in a powerful wine which improves over the years, giving a ripe stone-fruit fragrance on the nose like kirsch. Bottled in spring, it is necessary to be patient for it to develop its full potential. Vineyards’ age: 50 years”

Grape variety:

100% Gamay

Press review:

92-93 points Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“Resulting from five different pickings; treated to two weeks of fermentation with sporadic pump-overs; and tasted from tank just before bottling, Burgaud’s 2009 Morgon Cote de Py displays a striking intensity of fresh red and black raspberries alluringly inflected by vanilla, mint, toasted hickory, pencil lead, and smoked meat; an amazing alliance of density and silken texture with high-spirited brightness and vivacity; and a vibrant, gripping, saliva-inducing, lip-smackingly saline finish. This phenomenal value should provide an extraordinary drinking experience over at least a half dozen years. The 2005 incidentally – which was raised entirely in tank – is lovely and still sweetly-fruited if au point today.”
