Wines of the Château de Corcelles
Cépage : 100 % Gamay
Vineyards : At an altitude of approximately 250 m, our 2 hectares of Morgon, one of the 10 Beaujolais Crus, face south/south-east. The highly exposed terroir and specificity of the soil, shallow granite mixed with shale, are what give this wine all its character.
Vinification : 150 grape-pickers carefully select the grapes, before sorting them again in the skip. Vinification is done in our ultra-modern facility according to traditional Beaujolais methods. Maceration lasts 15 to 20 days, including twice daily pump-over or remontage, followed by stainless steel tank ageing before bottling in early summer..
Tasting : Beautiful freshness and elegant tannins on the palate with aromas of ripe fruit and mineral notes.
Service recommendations : Morgon Château de Corcelles is the perfect match for meat dishes. It should be served at 12-14° and can be aged for 5 to 10 years.
Available in bottle of 75 cl
