DOMAINE DE LA CHAPONNE

MORGON

This is a wonderful family Domaine of 14 hectares run by Laurent and Laurence Guillet. They produce wines from Morgon (12 h/a) and Chiroubles (1 h/a).

The Chiroubles which comes from Laurence’s family has granitic, sandy, stony soils producing fruity, younger drinking styles of wine. The grapes are wholebunch fermented with a remontage once or twice a day depending on the vintage for around 10 days. There is no pigeage.

Morgon Côte du Py has a very firm, stony terrain which produces more age-worthy wines. They use a ‘système de grillage’ for increased contact with the skins to bring out the full character and potential of the wine.

The Cuvée Saint Joseph is named after Laurent’s grandfather who started the Domaine. It is barrel-aged for those after greater richness. Truly magnificent wines!

The Morgon Cotes du Py drinks young but do try keeping it for 5 to 10 years!
