2015 Maison L'Envoye Morgon Cote du Py
Morgon produces hearty, expressive, long living Gamay, with the finest vineyards being situated along the Côte du Py. And it’s here that 40 year old vines are planted, on schists rich in manganese and iron. This soil structure provides a minerally edge to the raspberry and dark red fruit characters typically seen. The grapes harvested here are very representative of the best this appellation can offer. The grapes were hand harvested on September 7th from pebbly soil, schistous, iron oxide rich, typical of this appellation.
A semi-carbonic traditional method with 80% whole clusters. The must underwent a long, natural ferment utilizing wild yeasts in open-top vessels with submerged caps. The wine matured over the following 8 months in a combination of small tanks on fine lees and seasoned French oak achieving a subtle integration of oak spice characters and texture.
The 2015 Morgon shows rich aromas of ripe raspberries and blackberries complemented by underlying notes of dried citrus. Sweet mountain strawberries and wild herb flavors emerge on the layered palate which is held together with structured fine grained tannins and a distinct, acid driven minerality.
