A wine with black fruits and immense structure, this comes from the iconic Côte du Py slope in Morgon. The wine is rich, packed with tannins as much as fruit. It will age, so don’t drink before 2026.
What a beautiful nose of red fruits, summer flowers, spice and blood orange this Morgon has! Concentrated, elegant and precise on the medium-bodied palate, this has so much vitality and very good aging potential. Moderately dry tannins and vanilla at the long finish.
Notions of blackberries, dark chocolate, spices, vine smoke, peonies and licorice introduce the 2020 Morgon Côte du Py, a full-bodied, rich and muscular wine that’s the most brooding, wild wine in the Château des Jacques’ range, with an entirely different personality from the estate’s Moulin-à-Vent bottlings.
Saturated, bright-rimmed ruby. Deep-pitched, smoke-tinged cherry pit, cassis and violet aromas pick up spice and musky earth qualities with air. Densely packed, mineral-driven bitter cherry and dark berry flavors smoothly blend power and energy. The long, chewy finish shows fine delineation and features dusty tannins and emphatic floral and spice notes.
Dark magenta. Expansive red and blue fruit, violet, exotic spice and mineral qualities on the smoky nose. Appealingly sweet black raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors deepen and take on a spicy aspect as the wine opens up. Shows excellent clarity and solid thrust on an impressively long, subtly chewy finish that features sneaky tannins and lingering blue fruit character.
