Domaine Rochette Morgon Cote du Py 2018
The Rochette family has been crafting estate wine from northern Beaujolais for many generations. The Rochettes work with a very traditional but rigorous approach to the viticulture across several sites including the crus of Regnie and Morgon. The farming is all done by hand with a meticulous selection in the vineyard at harvest. This 2018 is a classic cru Beaujolais from Morgon’s top site, Cote du Py: 100% Gamay, it offers depth and purity of intense black cherry and strawberry fruit plus fennel seed spice on the nose and palate. Fresh acidity and gentle, grainy tannins give balance to the lengthy finish. It's the perfect 2020 Thanksgiving wine, crowd pleasing, affable and ready to drink.
