• Jean-Marc Burgaud 2018 Morgon Cote Du PY

Beaujolais. The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py derives from both higher-altitude and lower-lying parcels, and it is a great success this year, offering up a lovely bouquet of dark fruits, cherries, smoked meat and licorice. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and layered, with a fleshy and concentrated core, fine girdling tannins and succulent acids, concluding with a long and sapid finish. 94 Point Wine August 2019

As Jean-Marc Burgaud celebrates his 30th vintage this year, he has much to be proud of. A winemaker at the peak of his powers, Burgaud has abandoned new oak in favor of seasoned wood, and extraction is more measured than in the past, with his classical semi-carbonic macerations ranging from between seven and 15 days in duration, depending on the cuvée. And there's just one bottling of each wine, making for rare consistency—even for his 4.3-hectare holdings in Beaujolais-Lantignié (one of the region's finest values, incidentally). The 2018 vintage is a great success at this address, delivering succulent and supple wines bursting with lively fruit, and everything reviewed here comes warmly recommended. I'm planning a vertical of Burgaud's Côte du Py sometime soon, so readers can expect additional insights into his wines' superb aging potential. William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
