Item Description

100% Gamay. 2017 is Desvignes' first bottling from the famous climat of Corcelette in northern Morgon. Louis-Benoît and Claude Emanuelle have been interested in exploring terroir in Morgon outside of their usual estate parcels, and the short 2016 and 2017 vintages in their own vineyards gave them added motivation. The particular parcel in this maiden bottling is made up of 40-year-old vines on sandy pink granite soils on a southeast-facing hillside in the western part of Corcelette. The hand-harvested fruit was vinified like all other Desvignes wines: destemmed (atypical of Desvignes, who usually does all whole-cluster but couldn't in 2017) and fermented in open-top concrete vats, with a maceration of 12-13 days and with a submerged cap.
