Producer: Jean-Marc Burgaud
Jean-Marc Burgaud was recently dubbed ‘Monsieur Côte du Py’ by Bourgogne Aujourd’hui magazine. His fine domaine has seven hectares of vineyard on the Côte du Py in Morgon, making the Burgaud family the biggest owner of vines on this famous hill. Jean -Marc is originally from Lantignié and his wife, Christine, is from Morgon, the 11.5 hectares in Morgon were inherited from her side of the family
Jean-Marc Burgaud has 4.5 hectares in Morgon outside of Côte du Py. Morgon `Les Charmes` comes from granitic soils located to the west of Morgon which produce a poised, expressive and slightly more approachable Morgon than the structured Côte du Py. The 60-year-old vines are gobelet trained and planted at a high density to reduce the Gamay's natural vigour and increase concentration
This full, robust Beaujolais offers a fleshy texture and greater longevity than any other Beaujolais cru. Its exceptional structure supports vivid red fruit aromas. A wine for the serious Beaujolais drinker.
