I’m stated my job in 1989, after obtaining my diploma in oenology and wine-growing.
My estate is located in the tiny village of Morgon in the heart of Beaujolais crus.
I’m working on 19 hectares with 3 guaranteed vintage of red wines, (Beaujolais villages 5 hectares; Régnié 1 hectare; Morgon 13 hectares)
Born into a family of generations of wine growers, my passion is reflected in your glass when you taste these typical wines produced from my vineyards.
The ancient art of wine-growing, the grape picking by hand and the traditional vinification allow us to offer, year after year wines appreciated by connaisseurs.
The « gamay noir a jus Blanc » is the single variety of vine, for all red wines.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Morgon Côte de Py was raised in concrete vats and was bottled at the end of July 2015. This has more intensity compared directly against the Morgon Grands Cras: wild strawberry, cranberry leaf and just a hint of fish oil, all well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and well judged acidity - rounded and supple in the mouth, quite elegant but not shortchanging the customer on length and complexity. This is a well crafted, refined Morgon Côte de Py.
