Louis Claude Desvignes Morgon Cotes du Py ‘Javernières aux Pierres’ 2020

13.5% abv

Vol- 75cl

“Another new cuvée, from within Javernières, debuts with the 2020 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières Aux Pierres, a magical wine that unwinds in the glass with aromas of wild blueberries, orange rind, blackberry, bay leaf, warm spices and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, it’s layered and velvety, with incredible concentration, lively balancing acids and a long, resonant finish.” 95 WA

Now retired, Louis-Claude has passed the estate to his children Claude-Emmanuel and Louis-Benoît, the eight generation to work this land. Emmanuel joined in 2001 and Benoît in 2004; while little has changed stylistically, their arrival has brought some major shifts. 100% of the production is now estate-bottled (Louis-Claude sold about 50% of his production to négociants), the estate is now certified organic and the two have started a small négociant, so far producing two single vinyard expressions of Morgon.

The family's historic vineyards have been within the Morgon cru for generations. Their first cuvée comes from multiple, complimentary plots blended together to produce "La Voûte Saint-Vincent" The majority of the vines are on the Côte du Py in the center of Morgon,
the fruit of which is of far superior quality to that produced in the outlying areas of the
appellation If there were a classification of vineyards in Morgon, Côte-de-Py would be a premier cru and Javernières a grand cru.
They are located on the best exposition of the hill, with soil of decomposed schist, and Javernières is a plot within the Côte-de-Py with a little more clay.

In the past years, Desvignes has been picking the fruit later than the other vignerons in the area with a mind to get fruit of optimal ripeness. The wine is vinified by the traditional cru Beaujolais method with a grille to keep the cap submerged. Recently, the fermentation has been longer and more controlled than in the past in order to extract the color and material that are the most obvious virtues of this wine.
