Vignerons de Bel-Air

Morgon Climat Grand Cras

Very pleasant nose of cherry with notes of kirsch, enhanced by mild tobacco and menthol aromas. Elegant and rich palate, with a long finish.

Appellation

Morgon

Vineyard

The Grand Cras terroir is a real jewel in the region recognized as one of the best spots for the production of Morgon. At an average altitude of around 260 meters, on the south and south-east foothills of Côte du Py, the schist-based soils force the vines to develop very deep roots, producing fuller-bodied wines. Our vines are grown sustainably with rigorous input control. It’s essential for us to keep the terroir unspoiled to enable it to express all its potential.

Vinification

100% hand harvested with strict selection in the plots. 30% of the grapes are partially de-stemmed. Traditional vatting with semi-carbonic fermentation during 14 days under controlled temperatures.

Pairing

Serve with terrines, country ham, 7-hour roast leg of lamb, beef Bourguignon, beef daube Provencal with olives, feathered game (pheasant, duck) and strong cheeses.
