Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud, Morgon Côte du Py 2020

4.000000000 star rating 6 Reviews
The Côte du Py vineyard produces wines of controlled power and minerality. The overall effect is of intensity and elegance and, like most Morgon, this wine has great ageing potential. A Beaujolais classic.

Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud

Jean-Marc Burgaud is a top Beaujolais grower, claimed by many to be the best producer in Morgon.

Jean-Marc comes from a family of winemakers, and his own career in the industry began in 1989 after he completed a diploma in oenology. He now owns 19 hectares of vineyards in several appellations, comprising 13 hectares in Morgon where his estate is based, plus five hectares in the Beaujolais-Villages area and one hectare in Régnié.

His Régnié grapes are grown on 50-year-old vines in sandy, stony soil. Wines from Régnié – the youngest Beaujolais cru – are often supple, round, and fruity, and Burgaud calls his own example ‘feminine and cheerful.’

Harvesting is by hand, as it has been for generations, and tradition prevails in the winery too. Burgaud’s aim is always to illustrate his passion for winemaking in the most important place of all: the glass.

Perhaps most well-regarded are his two Morgons: the soft, refined Les Charmes and the more meatily-structured Cote du Py, both of which can benefit from time in the cellar.

Domaine Jean-Marc Burgaud Morgon Côte du Py 2020 (13%; The Wine Society, £14.95) comes from the most famous slope in Morgon and is excellent. Drink it, slightly chilled, with coq au vin (cooked in red wine, not riesling), mashed potatoes and the iron tang of steamed spinach on the side. I like the bracing effect of cold wine and hot food in winter. It's standard to chill Beaujolais.

A rich, powerful Beaujolais to tuck away for at least a couple of years. A good match for turkey, mind you.

Good freshness and energy with a minerally undertow. Firm finish promises well for the future. Good value. 16.5/20

Great ageing potential for this Côte du Py of dark fruit depth and smokey allure. There's good weight on the mid palate but also great precision and drive. The tannins have a refreshing gravely character, adding texture to the luscious plum and bramble flavours. 91/100
