« The 2012 Morgon Cote du Py, which comes from blue volcanic soils and sees 10 months in 50% new wood, has a gorgeous, voluptuous bouquet with pure black cherries and cassis fruit that is very well-defined and in synch with the wood. The palate is medium-bodied with very smooth tannins. This is a suave Morgon Cote du Py that gently caresses the palate and leaves a touch of spice on the finish. Delicious! » (Wine Advocate 2014 - Robert Parker)

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2015) : 15,5/20 (Très bon vin)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About this wine : L'élevage est un peu plus perceptible, la texture un peu plus crémeuse que dans l'autre morgon, jolis tannins même s'il reste une petite fermeté.

About the vineyard : The estate, porperty of Louis Jadot but independently managed by Guillaume de Castelnau and his team, has grown since its acquisition in 1996. Today, the vineyards covers 90 hectares, mostly in Moulin-à-Vent for which it is a specialist, not without reason since it possesses plots in the best areas, like Rochegrès, la Roche, Carquelins and recently la Rochelle. A respectful viticulture, a careful winemaking and well-balanced agings, everything works to make great wines of Beaujolais, evolving perfectly with time.

Vineyard rated : Recommended (Winery recommended by the Wine Advocate - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Le Morgon Côte du Py 2012, provenant de sols volcaniques bleus et élevé 10 mois en barriques dont 50% neuves, présente un sublime bouquet, voluptueux, avec des arômes purs de cerise noire et de cassis très bien définis et en accord avec le boisé. La bouche est mi-corsée avec des tanins très souples. Il s'agit là d'un Morgon Côte du Py suave qui carresse le palais et laisse une pointe épicée en finale. Délicieux !

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

About this wine : un morgon-côte-de-py bien épicé et ferme.

About the vineyard : This flagship estate of Moulin-à-Vent was purchased by  Jadot in 1996. This acquisition has proven to be successful with a rise that very few Beaujolais estates had experienced for almost twenty years. It was a bold, but now transformed, bet for which Pierre-Henri Gagey was committed based on the know-how of Guillaume de Castelnau, the current Director of the Château since 2000. 2014 will be his last harvest as he takes a well deserved retirement. He delimited precisely the various terroirs and developped the area, reaching today about 90 ha in production. The "Burgundian" wines had long given a unique signature in the region. But in recent years, other areas were inspired by this original vision of gamay the Château des Jacques had initiated. All the cuvées parcellaires require a minimum of five years to fully express the unique character of their terroir. It therefore takes patience to take advantage of their complexity !

Nestling in the Beaujolais hills, the small village of Villié-Morgon has become a mandatory stopping-off point for wine lovers, because of its appeal and its location on the Beaujolais wine route in the heart of the grands crus. The Morgon AOC dates from 1935, when a National Institute of Appellations of Origin (INAO) decree gave it its birth. The Morgon appellation vineyards are ...
