2016 Morgon, La cote de Py

A wine so precious it deserves a full poice escort. The mixture of clay and limestone schist supply the character, the expressive tannins and lightness, the finesse and kirsch fruits, the flavour. The Morgon needs to be protected and savoured, but deserves to be loved.

The producer

Domaine Joubert

Domaine Marcel Joubert is a traditional family farm that dates back over 4 generations, having forged bonds, built memories and created a conveyor belt of truly superb wines. 

When Marcel Joubert took control of the 10 hectacre farm in 1972, he began to preserve the heritage of the old vines while applying organic viticulture without certification and without compromise. Following his own distinctive philosophy he helped make wines that were an authentic expression of the terroir, refusing to filter or to use sulphur, preferring to utilize the indigenous yeasts to carry out the fermentations. Now, in the present day, the fields have an organic certification that has been effective since the 2012 vintage and the Domaine is in rude health indeed.

Marcel Joubert precedes over five appellations in total; Beaujolais, Brouilly, Chiroubles, Fleurie and Morgan the various soils, altidudes and exposures giving each of their wine their own identities and complexities while remaining true to Joubert traditions.
