Vineyards situation : The Beaujolais vineyard is situated in the Southern part of the Burgundy region. There are 22 000 hectares (55000 acres) of vineyards planted in this area.

Characteristics : Morgon is one of the 10 ‘Crus' of the Beaujolais. The production area of Morgon is about 1100 hectares (2750 acres) on a granite and schist soil. Maison Jadot bought this vineyard in 2001. It is situated on the slopes over thevillage of Villié Morgon, facing South to South-East. It covers 87.5 acres on the Morgon appellation.

Wine making : This wine is vinified in vats for 12 to 20 days. Since the 2001 vintage, we produce different "cuvées" from the different Clos : Côte du Py, Bellevue and Les Charmes. They are then aged in oak barrels before bottling.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : With a deep sherry colour, with walnut and little red fruits aromas, this wine has silky tannins that will help it to age. It will be a perfect partner for « charcuteries », Italian foods, red and white meats when young. Getting older, it will be perfect with game game meat.

Preservation : This wine will be perfect drunk young but will also be able to age 5-10 years inperfect conditions of temperature and humidity.
