Grapes: 100% Gamay
Style: Med-bodied, earthy
Producer: Château de Belleverne
Le Cru à Roche Pourrie. This exemplary Côte de Py showcases Morgon's savoury character.
The nose is perfumed with aromas of strawberry and raspberry. The palate is vibrant and fruity with hints of spruce and a beetrooty, earthy finish. (for beetroot haters, this doesn't taste of beetroot!).
In The Vineyard
'Roches Pourries' refers to the crumbled, flaky rock rich in iron oxide and manganese which imparts a red ochre colour to the soil of this prized vineyard of Côte de Py. Here 55 year-old Gamay grapes are harvested by hand from the best vineyard in the cru, and only the best clusters of grapes are selected for the wine.
Fantastic with game or other strong flavoured meats, casseroles, and cheeses.
