This is a wine to keep; its character resulting from the soil composition (The cote du Py hillside near the tiny village of Morgon). This is the most typical wine of this appellation, thanks to its rich soil of blue stones coming from the disintegration of schist. The Morgon Côte du Py is full bodied and tannic. A wine to keep. The long maceration of the whole grape results in a powerful wine which improves over the years, giving a ripe stone-fruit fragrance on the nose like kirsch. Bottled in spring, it is necessary to be patient for it to develop its full potential.

The 2017 Morgon Cote du Py is also smoking good, with a similar black and blue-fruited style in its ripe, roasted herbs, wood smoke, licorice, and meaty aromas and flavors. These carry over to the palate where the wine is medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and layered, with some serious oomph and richness that's balanced nicely by the wine's purity and elegance. I like it today, yet it has good acidity and ample tannins, and is going to keep for over a decade.

Aromas of spring flowers, plums, cassis, orange rind and wood smoke introduce the 2017 Morgon Côte du Py, an ample, full-bodied wine with juicy acids, fine tannins and excellent concentration, its largely concealed structural chassis only asserting itself on the long, tangy finish. The most incipiently complex member of Burgaud's Grands Cras, Charmes and Côte du Py trio, it will reward a few years of patience.
