Château La Grange Cochard Morgon Côte du Py 2018
'From old vines grown at the very top of the most renowned terroir of Morgon, the Côte du Py, on the crushed blue schist of the ancient volcano. Predominantly de-stemmed, followed by a 2-3 week fermentation and maturation in a mix of barrique and larger format oak.
‘The 2018 Morgon “Côte du Py” from Sarah and James Wilding’s Grange Cochard is a lovely wine in the making, coming in at fourteen percent octane and delivering a deep and sappy
nose of cassis, black cherries, espresso, bonfire, grilled gamebird, dark soil tones and a topnote of currant leaf. On the palate the wine is deep, ripe, full-bodied and powerful in personality, with a rock solid core of fruit, superb soil signature, firm tannins and great length and grip on the nascently complex, tangy and broad-shouldered finish. This is vibrant and precise, despite plenty of muscle, and should age brilliantly. 2027-2065.'
