James and Sarah Wilding bought Château Grange Cochard in 2008 and have set about completely re-invigorating this old estate. They are fortunate to have some 8 hectares of the best vineyard holdings in the area, including the top of the prestigious Côte de Py. These vineyards are managed sustainably - much of the work is done by hand, no insecticides are used and only organic fertiliser is applied to the soil. The old vines here, mostly between 40 and 100 years of age, produce wines with depth, complexity and concentration rarely found in Beaujolais.
Grange Cochard Morgon Les Charmes 2014
The Grange Cochard estate is blessed with vineyard stock Sranging from 40 to 100 years old. These vines produce low yields of smaller berries absolutely bursting with structure, flavour and elegance. The Les Charmes cuvee is based on wines growing on the pink grante of the climat. The wine is rich and concentrated with a graceful floral lift. “Very youthful and substantial. Almost more burgundy than beaujolais. – Jancis Robinson MW, jancisrobinson.com, 20 Nov 2012
