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.
Impressive wild-blackberry fruit with touches of wild herbs and candied orange. The medium-bodied palate is very elegant and structured with plenty of dried-herb and wet-earth character. Very long, stony finish with clove and cardamon. The first vintage of this wine from a single hectare of vines planted in 1932. Drink or hold. Rating: 94 Points; James Suckling
A new cuvée from Burgaud, the 2021 Morgon Corcelette derives from holdings in La Roche Pilée, part planted in 1932 and part planted in 1970. Bursting with aromas of mulberries, plums, smoke and pencil shavings, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textural, with an ample, layered core of fruit and a giving, supple profile. It's a fine addition to the range. Rating: 92 Points; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
