Domaine de Lathevalle's Morgon ‘Les Charmes’ is a smooth, medium-bodied red with balanced notes of cool red berries, redcurrants, earthy notes, and fine tannins. Enjoy with a tasty Beef Bourguignon or roasted leg of lamb for a delightful flavour experience, or pair with charcuterie and semi-soft cheese for a superb easy-going evening.
About the Producer
Within the eastern part of the Beaujolais cru of Morgon there are two lauded hilltop vineyards - La Côte de Py and Les Charmes. Domaine de Lathevalle's Morgon comes from the latter, covering 10 hectares in one piece and enjoying a particularly interesting exposure due to its south-east facing slopes. Since 2017, Lathevalle has been owned by Patrice du Jeu of Les Héritiers Saint-Genys; his eye for spotting potentially great terroir and a philosophy based on ‘the attachment to soils, respect of the vineyard and passion for wine’, led him to this vineyard.
Domaine de Lathevalle employs the principles of reasoned viticulture, using methods such as tillage to control weeds, and de-budding and green harvesting to manage yields
Vineyard and Winery
'Les Charmes' is one of the most prestigious of the six lieux-dit within Morgon, situated on higher slopes with sandy, granitic soils. South east facing Gamay vines, which are between 35 and 60 years of age, are managed following the principles of reasoned viticulture. Following parcel selection, grapes are harvested by hand into small 20kg boxes, sorted with the help of a vibrating table before traditional vinification in concrete vats using only the wild yeasts present on the grape skins. The wine is aged for 6 months and bottled after a light filtration.
