Domaine des Gaudets 2011 Côte du Py, Morgon, Cru Beaujolais | 12.5% | 100% Gamay Noir planted to the schistose granite and the telltale metamorphic slate that sets Côte du Py as the jewel in the Morgon crown. Just south of Villié-Morgon this prized slope is widely held as the best climat in all of Morgon if not all of Beaujolais. Its fragrant force and sapid intensity are in a league of their own. Planted to the decomposing soils they in Beaujolais call roches pourries, or rotted rock, this Beaujolais is cut of a different cloth –a resplendent cloth of color, texture, and glowing beauty. The roches pourries reveals itself from the very nose –in the way of wild cherries, root spices and apricots which in a red of this sort is nothing short of hypnotic.
