Wine Enthusiast - Domaines Piron - Morgon "Côte du Py 2015"


"Maybe that's because its vineyard are owned by heavy hitters of Beaujolais Crus : Dominique Piron... They make wines that are serious, when young and that can age for many years, when they become similar to red Burgundy".

"Piron's production epitomizes what has happened in Morgon"

"His wines highlight individual terroirs : the dramatic Côte du Py, with its bluestone volcanic granite on slopes up to 1,500 feet ; Javernières, another outcrop of the same soil, and les Grands Cras with its decomposed granite".
