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.
Quite some depth and ripe red and black berry aromas for the 2021 vintage, but also gentle tannins and lively mineral acidity. With aeration delicate herbal nuances develop. Long licorice finish. From 4 hectares of vineyards with 45 to 70-year-old vines. 100% whole cluster and matured only in concrete tanks. Drink or hold. Rating: 92 Points; James Suckling
Now labelled as the 2021 Beaujolais-Lantignié rather than as Beaujolais-Villages, with a view to further foreground its Lantignié origins, this cuvée is once again a notable success. Offering up aromas of smoky berries, spices and petals, it's medium-bodied, supple and seamless, with lively acids and a charming, giving profile. Rating: 91 Points; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
