    Standing on the top of the blue schist terroir that is Morgon Côte du Py on a wonderfully sunny but utterly freezing morning is something that will live long in the memory. Côte du Py has upwards of 100 growers sharing it, Piron being well placed with 7ha, all planted at 10,000 vines per ha.


    Dominique Piron’s family history in Beaujolais spans more than four centuries, with his oldest known ancestor born in Morgon in 1590. Since then, there have been 14 generations of winegrowers in the family. Dominique seeks to create characterful terroir wines that are fruity, subtle and elegant from his sloping vineyards of fragmented granite and schist. These are wines that showed us what we’d long been looking for from Beaujolais but had almost given up hope of finding. They display extraordinary depth, freshness and verve, with real terroir-specific differences between the various crus. Morgon wines tend to be racy and elegant, and always have a slight hint of black cherry, bright spicy notes and great structure, which lends them great ageing potential.


    It is a good time to be a lover of Beaujolais. The regions bucolic, bubble-gummy wines are a thing of the past, the farming has improved as has the quality and what was once a cheap and cheerful option to Burgundy is now a sought-after addition to a wine drinkers quiver. It’s predominantly a red wine region centred around the Gamay grape with small amounts of Chardonnay and Aligoté making up the whites. From the youthful exuberance of Beaujolais Nouveau to stellar producers from one of the ten ‘Crus’. The 10 crus, from north to south, are: Saint-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Régnié, Brouilly and Côte de Brouilly. Local knowledge: Look for wines from the excellent Côte du Py vineyard in Morgon and keep an eye out for an 11th Cru, Lantignié, rumored to be joining the fold in the near future.
