Maison L'Envoyé Morgon Cote du Py 2013
The fruit was destemmed and the whole berries allowed to undergo a long, natural ferment utilizing wild yeasts in open top vessels. Maturation for 12 months in older French oak followed for subtle spice integration. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The 2013 vintage was an excellent one in Beaujolais and this Côte du Py is a great example. Layered aromas of red and dark berries are complimented with subtle savory characters. The palate is bright and shows an intense juiciness of ripe red berry compote, earthy undercurrents and a refreshing thread of acidity. Really quite moreish yet will also age well over the next few years. This is no insipid Beaujolais.
