Vignobles Bulliat Morgon “Nature” Beaujolais, France
Vignobles Bulliat’s 2019 Morgon “Nature” is made from 100% Gamay that comes from a south-east facing 4-hectare hillside plot that reaches up to a 40° slope. The soils are composed of crumbly schist and granite, and vines average 60 years old. After the grapes are hand-harvested, whole-cluster fermentation takes place after a long maceration in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks using only indigenous yeasts. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in concrete vats for 4 months and bottled unfined, unfiltered, with no added sulfites.
Bright and fragrant, with strawberry and cranberry infused fruit, Bulliat’s Morgon shows wonderful finesse along with its balanced tannin structure. There is also a clear mineral backbone, which adds to the beautiful aromatic and textural lift present in the wine.
