Château Grange Cochard Morgan Vieilles Vignes 2015 - Beaujolais, France


The Story

This historic Chateau which dates back to 1759 is situated south of Macon in the wine appellation of Morgon.  The Chateau is surrounded by 8 hectares of some of the finest vines which have a age range of 40 to 100 years old. The gnarled and twisted plants give low yields, great intensity and complexity, with deep root systems penetrating the different layers of granitic schist. The Chateau was restored and given new life in 2008 when Sarah and James Wilding purchased the estate.  With a strong philosophy in doing things by hand, Sarah and James set about with a commitment to sustainable viticulture with minimum intervention using natural farming methods, no insecticides, no irrigation and only organic fertilisers applied in the vineyards. This philosophy is also followed in the winery where grapes are processed as gentle and minimally as possible.

M+Q Notes

 From 40-70 year old Gamay vines grown on ancient stony-clay decomposed granite alluvial soils just across the road from the Château. Vinification of whole bunches, followed by a 2-3 week fermentation and maturation in old 3000 litre foudres. Black cherries, sweet dark berries and chocolate aromas. On the palate the wine is deep with ripe fruits and good focus and grip.
