Description

100% Gamay from 'Cote du Py' (a hillside in Morgon that produces the best and most concentrated wines of Morgon). The Charlet family have been landowners and wine merchants in Beaujolais and the Mâconnais since the 18th century. In 1754, their wines were already held in high esteem in Paris. One of their customers was the first architect to King Louis XVI, working on the magnificent Château de Versailles. Today, the family continues to own several estates with wines produced under the supervision of chief winemaker Jean-Pierre Rodet. Inspiring concentration with ripe, seductive black fruits. More masculine style with power, charming earthy undertones, cinnamon and tobacco that makes the wine stand out. Very good wine indeed! Perfect with slow-roasted red meats, medium cheeses, lamb, beef bourguignon, game.
