Winemaker Notes: 100% Gamay. Desvignes has 2 hectares of eastern-exposed vines averaging 40 years old in the historic Morgon lieu-dit of Javernières at the foot of the famous hill of the Côte du Py. The soils are much heavier and stickier with deep, iron-rich red clay here versus the more schistous "rotten rock" up the Py hill. The exposure is also more easterly; the wines tend to be dense but soft and more red-toned and elegant versus the darker, more muscular, older-vine ones off of the Côte du Py.

Viticulture and vinification are consistent across all Desvignes wines. The vines are certified-organic and harvested by hand. The clusters go through a semi-carbonic maceration in open-top concrete vats, with a submerged-cap maceration of 10-14 days. A very small amount of sulfur (1-2 grams/hectoliter) is added after malo and sometimes at bottling. The wine is aged in concrete tank for about 9 months and bottled with a light, non-sterile filtration.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2020 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is brilliant, unwinding in the glass with aromas of wild berries, spices, rose petals, loamy soil and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with impressive reserves of ripe tannin and sapid fruit, it's seamless and lively, concluding with a long, resonant finish. As ever, this is built to age, and it will reward patience, even if its youthful charms are considerable."
