Domaine Burgaud

Coming from a winemaking family, Jean-Marc Burgaud set up his own estate in 1989 with his wife Christine. Their 19 hectares are divided between Morgon (13 hectares), Régnié (one hectare) and Beaujolais Villages (five hectares) and Jean-Marc believes that this is the maximum area he can cultivate while still producing the quality he is after. The gobelet vines have an average age of 60 years, and are planted at high density (10,000 per hectare). Although not certified, he farms organically and all the work in the vineyard is done by hand. Among his wines, Morgon Cote du Py is one of the most typical wine of the Morgon appellation, thanks to its rich soil of blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. The Morgon « Côte du Py » is full bodied and tannic. A wine to keep. The long maceration of the whole grape results in a powerful wine which improves over the years, giving a ripe stone-fruit fragrance on the nose like kirsch.
