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 Vielles Vignes 2016
The Grange Cochard estate is blessed with vineyard stock ranging from 40 to 100 years old. These vines produce low yields of smaller berries absolutely bursting with structure, flavour and elegance. This is their classic Morgon from vines up to 70 years old, aged in large foudres and is packed with dark cherry fruit and aromas of pepper and summer meadow.
