Jean Marc Burgaud works in Cote du Py and surrounding parcels in Morgon. Crowned by Robert Parker’s Wine Buyer’s Guide as one of only eight five-star estates in Beaujolais, he is going from strength to strength and his response to critical acclaim and consumer adulation has been to work even harder. The importer Neville Yates reports that he was in the cellars tasting back to his first vintage, 1992, when his English importer urged Jean-Marc to take advantage of the super-ripe 2009 vintage and put up his prices to something that might enable him to eke out a more comfortable living. Jean-Marc was reluctant but eventually caved: he jacked the prices up about 20c a bottle!
Burgaud's Morgon Côte du Py Réserve comes from old vines and is barrel aged for 12 months to refine the tannins. A great wine for ageing. Brooding, complex but rather closed nose. Concentrated, red berry palate, with tannic grip and fresh acidity. Very mineral; needs a few more years. Drink: 2016-2020. Alcohol 13%. Rating: 90+ points (17.25/20) Decanter
