PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Jean-Marc Burgaud’s history in winemaking is not very long, but he has quickly made his mark in Burgundy as a seriously talented craftsman. Based in the village of Morgon, where he purchased his aunt’s 12th century estate and converted it to a winery, he is a meticulous farmer who espouses the philosophy that great wines are made in the vineyards and lavishes ample attention on his 19 hectares of hillside vines planted in granitic/schistose soils. His wines are made the traditional way, with carbonic maceration (whole berry fermentation in an oxygen-free environment) and aging in a combination of tanks and barrels.

Today’s wine is a monovarietal (100% Gamay) sourced from a granite-heavy area called Charmes in the western part of the Morgon Cru, from vines that average 60 years in age. The juice undergoes carbonic maceration for a period of 7-10 days, which brings forth soft, plush fruit characters. Medium-bodied and velvety-smooth, it is redolent with aromas and flavors of blueberries and black raspberries. On the palate, the generous fruit characters are accented by subtle hints of brambly herbs and brightened by vibrant acidity. 

92+ points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“Aromas of blackberries, mulberries and cherries, complemented by hints of cracked pepper, introduce Burgaud's 2019 Morgon Les Charmes, a medium to full-bodied, rich and lively wine that's more than usually structured this year, its powdery tannins asserting themselves on the finish.” (5/29/20)
