REGION

France, Beaujolais, Morgon, Cote du Py

Cote du Py is a famous vineyard on the slopes of Morgon’s central Mount du Py. The soil is a hard black schist, meaning coarse-grained metamorphic rock made of layers of different minerals. Of the 10 crus of Beaujolais, Moulin-a-Vent and Morgon are considered to have the finest terroirs.

TYPE

Red Wine, Gamay, Cru Beaujolais

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
