2022 Desvignes Morgon Javernières

2022 Desvignes Morgon Javernières



From what the Desvignes view as the Grand cru subsector at the southern foot of the Côte de Py hillside dubbed Javernières, here the soil is similar but with a more prominent iron and manganese rich clay component as well. The wines have even more structure, yet at the same time are even silkier and harmonious. This presents the greatest aging potential of the range, easily a decade plus. Like everything on this offer, a testament to the ridiculously overachieving value and complexity that the best of Beaujolais has to offer……

“The 2022 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is blessed with wonderful transparency and complexity on the nose – vivid red berry fruit, wilted rose petal and crushed stones. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins. It’s fresh and focused, gently building to a tensile, lightly spiced and quite persistent finish. Real class.” 94 Neil Martin

“Unfurling in the glass with a youthfully reserved nose of raspberries, wild plums, spices, white tea and rose petals, the 2019 Morgon Côte du Py Javernières is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with real concentration, lively acids and powdery structuring tannins. Still quite tightly wound after its recent bottling—a matter of weeks before I tasted it—this will, as ever, merit several years in the cellar. At maturity, I suspect the 2019 will be more dynamic than the 2018 rendition, and it will delight admirers of serious cru Beaujolais.” 94+ William Kelley for the 2019, NOT THE 2022 OFFERED HERE
