Domaine Dominique Piron Côte du Py / 2019 / 375mL
Standing on the top of the blue schist terroir that is Morgon Côte du Py on a wonderfully sunny but utterly freezing morning is something that will live long in the memory.
Côte du Py has upwards of 100 growers sharing it, Piron being well placed with 7ha, all planted at 10,000 vines per ha. We previously brought in the utterly compelling 2015 vintage of this wine. Now it’s the turn of the 2016, which is now available in half bottle.
Savoury, earthy, meaty nose that also shows pure cherry, strawberry and the spice again. Really dense and concentrated, more so than the 2015 we shipped earlier, but still with that saline earthiness and finishing long and pure.
