Mommessin Grandes Mises Morgon Cote de Py
La Côte du Py is the most famous climat in Morgon, with wines that are considered to be the best representations of Morgon. The black volcanic soil produces complex, structured age-worthy reds. This example was produced from 100% gamay grown on vines aged between 35 and 40 years. From the dream vintage of 2018, the wine offers great depth and structure with succulence and velvety tannins.
Mommessin Grandes Mises Cote de Brouilly
The vineyard is situated at the base of the steep Mount Brouilly slopes, with a rigorous selection on the property of the partner-grower. The vineyard faces South-East and benefits from sunshine thanks to the rounded hillside. The 56 year old vines are traditionally pruned "en gobelet". Each step of the winemaking process is aimed at preserving the succulence of the excellent gamay fruit and encouraging a soft, silky texture. The nose reveals discreet aromas of red fruits with violets and peonies. The taste, lightly smoked, follows with a fine balance of silky tannins and red-berry fruits, spicy and chocolate notes with an excellent long finish. Cote de Brouilly, with its greater richness and structure, should not be confused with the appellation of Brouilly.
