"This structured wine from vines planted on the volcanic soil of the Côte de Py slope is young but already impressive. With dark fruits and dense tannins, it will take a while to mature. Drink from 2024." *Cellar Selection"
"Full bottle 1,303 g. Cask sample. 100% Gamay on old volcanic rocks and blue stones. Partially destemmed, long vinification with regular punchdowns. Partly aged in barrels and foudres.
Bruised iris, earthy, woody, violet-flower scented. This is rather glamorous! The moment it was in my mouth, the only word I could find was 'magnificent'. It tasted, felt, like black-purple silk. Like midnight. Like pewter by candlelight. Smoky yet headily floral – but darkly floral. Pomegranate molasses and souk spice. Black cherries and kohl pencil. A beaujolais channelling the soul of Marrakech. It would be fascinating to taste this with Moroccan food... 17/20 points. (TC)"

"Dominique Piron's Morgon makes me envision black raspberries nudged against chocolate cake. It's joyful, hedonistic wine to be sure. But the structure is also serious and impeccable, and the light waves of sandalwood-like spice add an especially enticing note to the aroma. The Piron family has been growing grapes here since the sixteenth century, making Dominique a fourteenth-generation winemaker. The Cote de Py is a small hill within Morgon that produces especially concentrated flavors."
