Chateau Grand Pre Morgon Beaujolais 2020

A naturally produced rich and muscular wine with an
appealing earthy nose of chunky red cherries and a
touch of minerality.
Producer Note
The Château de Grand Pré comprises a beautiful 18th Century castle complete with
vaulted cellars, a "lieu dit" vineyard and an eight hectare family domain in the
Beaujolais region. The winery is located in the heart of Fleurie where they own six
hectares of vineyard, with a further two hectares in the village of Morgon. When Louis
and Renée Bertrand bought the domain in 1972, the vines were old and the cellars
were in ruins. They took the estate in hand and gave it a new lease of life, replanting
and rebuilding. Today it is run by their grandson Romain Zordan, who has brought a
modern and organic approach, with sustainable cultivation in the vineyard. The estate
has been certified organic since 2012. Naturally vinified, these wines are a true
expression of their Beaujolais terroir.

Vineyard
Morgon is one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus and the Morgon terroir is very complex.
Located on the smooth slopes of Mont de Py, the soil consists of blue volcanic shists,
sand and the Saone's river sediments, which impart the wine with more power and
structure than the other Crus. Chateau de Grand Pré farms organically. The vines are
pruned very precisely into a Goblet shape and a green harvest, results in a higher
concentration of flavour in the berries. The vines are over 40 years old, so yields are very
low at approximately 35 hectolitres per hectare. The soil is made of decomposed rock
and crumbly schist. Grass is maintained in between the rows, in order to preserve the
natural ecosystem of the vineyard. The grapes were harvested by hand at optimal
ripeness.
Winemaking
Vinified with minimal intervention. Carbonic maceration took place for 15 days, a slow
process in order to gently extract the complexity of aromas. Sulphur was not added
during the vinification process and only minimal sulphur was added at the time of
bottling. Natural yeast fermentation took place at controlled temperatures. The wine
was then aged for several months in small French oak barrels and demi-muids (650
litres). This wine may leave a light deposit resulting a slightly cloudy appearance due to
its natural vinification.
Tasting Note
Rich, powerful and balanced, with an appealing nose of raspberries, cherries and a
hint of smokiness. The ripe red fruits combine with powerful tannins on the palate with a
long, firm finish.
