Standing on the top of the blue schist terroir that is Morgon Côte du Py on a wonderfully sunny but utterly freezing morning is something that will live long in the memory. Côte du Py has upwards of 100 growers sharing it, Piron being well placed with 7ha, all planted at 10,000 vines per ha.
'Red and black fruits, a dusting of five spice, maybe some peat and dried roses. It’s medium-bodied, kind of juicy and jubey, but then turns more serious with grip and graphite tannin, undergrowth, and a kind of mandarin juice tang. Finish is robust, firm and pretty long. A beauty.' - 93+ points. Gary Walsh, The Wine Front
