Description

93 points John Gilman, View from the Cellar
"The Côte du Py bottling from the Depardon family hails from their three hectares of vines on the summit of the vineyard. The grapes are destemmed, fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised entirely in old foudres prior to bottling. The 2018 Côte du Py delivers a refined bouquet of red and black cherries, gamebird, a bit of espresso, lovely minerality, a dollop of fresh thyme and a smoky topnote. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and beautifully transparent in personality (particularly for 2018), with a fine core of fruit, ripe, buried tannins and a long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. This is an excellent example of Côte du Py. 2020- 2055+."

Vinous Reverie Notes
Py is a collapsed volcano cone, a great mound dominating the landscape just south of the town of Villie-Morgon, and it is composed primarily of schist with some granite and blue-stoned andesite. The southern end of this mound is considered the best zone for vines - it has the best exposition plus it’s the rockiest (super rocky!), whereas the northern end is much sandier - and the Depardons have all of their 7.5 acres in three parcels on the southern end, facing south and southeast. This Côte du Py is all about finesse and concentrated elegance.
