About Domaine Jules Desjourneys Morgon Vieilles Vignes

The wines of the Morgon AOC are keeping a secret. Fine, fruity, elegant ... They closely guard at their core an enigma that only time and patience can reveal. Blessed are those who are able to patiently wait to taste Domaine Jules Desjourneys Morgon Vieilles Vignes!

It seems that for years Fabien Duperry has had the same level-headedness and stamina. Since 2006, this Burgundy merchant has been providing great joy with his wines, becoming one of the essential names of this area north of Beaujoalis (south of Burgundy). Despite the fact that the wines of the Morgon AOC are very interesting thanks to their maturation, where they show great aging capacity, but for Jules Desjourneys the really important phase is fermentation. ‘For me it's the most important part of the winery. I need the best fruit, but I need to control the fermentation to have complex aromas,’ he says. Obviously, this can only be achieved with good fruit grown in his vineyards at La Chapelle de Guinchay, where old gamay vines grow on soils where granite, blue stones and foothills mix. In particular, the Morgon AOC is the second largest in the region, with a height of 310 metres above sea level.

Domaine Jules Desjourneys Morgon Vieilles Vignes is fermented with whole bunches, by semi-carbonic fermentation, in tapered vats where it macerates for at least three weeks. Likewise, for Fabien Duperry, aging is fundamental and at Jules Desjourneys each wine is given the necessary time. In the case of Domaine Jules Desjourneys Morgon Vieilles Vignes, the wine will rest for at least one and a half years in stainless steel tanks. Fabien Duperry has been moving away from wood for years, opting for other materials.

In Beaujolais, they say a wine ‘morgons’ when it improves as it ages. From Decántalo we make sure to say that Domaine Jules Desjourneys Morgon Vieilles Vignes is a super morgoning wine. You can be sure of that.
