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.
Deep savory nose with notes of dried thyme, rosemary and wet earth. Seriously structured with a ton of character, this is a very strong wine for the vintage. However, the tannins are anything but dominant at the long, moderately dry, earthy finish. From three hectares of 50 to 70-year-old vines. Drink or hold. Rating: 93 Points; James Suckling
Notes of wild berries, plums, smoked duck and orange rind introduce the 2021 Morgon Grands Cras, a medium to full-bodied, ample and succulent wine that's supple and sensual, with lively acids and a saline finish. It's another wine that shows the lighter vintage at its best. Rating: 92 Points; Robert Parker's The Wine Advocate
