AOC Morgon (Beaujolais)
Louis-Claude Desvignes Morgon Corcelette is a barrel-aged red wine made by Louis-Claude Desvignes with the Gamay variety in the AOC Morgon, in Burgundy.
Louis-Claude Desvignes is an estate that has been used for winemaking since 1700. Eight generations have grown and sold grapes here, in one of the most prestigious terroirs in Morgon. Although Louis-Claude was the one who started making his own wines, the first to start bottling here were his sons and current managers, Claude-Emmanuelle and his brother Louis-Benoît.
Louis-Claude Desvignes Morgon Corcelette comes from a plot planted with 40-year-old vines growing in sandy pink granite soils on a south-east facing slope. They are grown using ecological agriculture and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
In the winery, Louis-Claude Desvignes Morgon Corcelette is vinified by fermenting mainly the whole bunches in open concrete tanks and with a maceration of about two weeks. Once the wine is ready, it is bottled with a light filtering.
Louis-Claude Desvignes Morgon Corcelette is one of the most exciting wines currently made in the village of Morgon. A wine that spends no time in the barrel and showcases the grape and the soil exactly as they are.
