Morgon - Aux Charmes
Origin of the climate
Morgon wines draw their strength from the terroir of Villié-Morgon. This famous Beaujolais cru contains an exceptional power which releases its secrets after a few years. It is perhaps the most "Burgundian" of the Beaujolais wines. Don't we say "The Charm of a Burgundy and the fruit of a Beaujolais".
Located to the west of the hamlet of Morgon, in the southernmost part of the appellation, the vineyard is on a gently sloping hillside, facing south-east, and at an altitude of between 350 and 400 meters. The soil, marked by erosion, very stony, gives Morgon "Les Charmes" the fleshy fruitiness of the great Beaujolais, and the rich and fine expression specific to Burgundy wines.
