The Côte du Py, is the most prestigious of the six climates of the Morgon cru. This hill, with its rounded shapes, culminates at an altitude of 358 m, a link between the villages of Villié and Morgon. The Côte du Py is a flavor, that of a Morgon that fills the mouth and engraves the memory. Its subsoil, rich in manganese and iron, gives this wine an incomparable richness.
Birth of the wine:
The 4 ha of vines divided into several plots are exposed on the southern slope of the Côte du Py and dominate Morgon. In the subsoil, the schists disintegrate into a soil impregnated with iron oxide and manganese, called roche-pourrie. On the surface, blue stones litter the soil and give more warmth to the vine. Goblet pruning and sustainable cultivation for the old vines, fan pruning and grassing on the young vines. Manual harvest for a traditional vinification in semi-carbonic maceration, vatting for 10 to 15 days with pumping over, delestage and pigeage. Pneumatic pressing. Maturing 12 months in wooden tuns and 1/5 in barrels.
