From 60 year old vines, this Cru has an expressive dark fruit character, with lifted acidity and a finely-grained tannic structure. A long, intense finish with a lovely structure.
Jean-Marc Burgaud was recently dubbed ‘Monsieur Côte du Py’ by Bourgogne Aujourd’hui magazine. His fine domaine has seven hectares of vineyard on the Côte du Py in Morgon, making the Burgaud family the biggest owner of vines on this famous hill. Jean-Marc is originally from Lantignié and his wife, Christine, is from Morgon; the 11.5 hectares in Morgon were inherited from her side of the family. “My father used to tell me that Lantignié produced the best Beaujolais, but when I first met Christine, her father opened a 20-plus-year-old bottle of Côte du Py for me and that opened my eyes to the potential of Beaujolais,” he explains. Today, the domaine has 18 hectares of vineyards across Beaujolais Villages, Morgon and Régnié.
