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. He began in 1989 and has slowly explanded to 19 hectares of vines; 13 hectares in the Beaujolais cru Morgon, 1 hectare of vines planted in the cru Régnié, and 5 hectares in Beaujolais Villages. Born into a family of generations of wine growers, Jean-Marc learned the importance of working the vines by hand and traditional vinification techniques in the cellar by the age of 22 and vinifies his wines with traditional Burgundian methods.
The blackest cherries you can imagine here, but it's startlingly fresh. Still very young but with a fabulously silky texture and delicate minerality that underlines the ravishing fruit beautifully. Very long, cool and stony finish that is so inspiring. Rating: 96 Points; Stuart Pigott; JamesSuckling
