"Nose of patchouli and old rose. Wide mouth held by mouth-watering acidity. Beautiful expression of terroir. "(RVF Special Vintage 2014 - June 2015). A structured red, mineral and very good guard, with lovely spicy.

Domaine Piron

Wine growing started with the Romans in the Beaujolais region since the 3rd century. Dominique Piron’s oldest known ancestor was born in Morgon in 1590. Since then, there have been 14 generations of wine growers in the family. Morgon and Moulin à Vent wines have long been renowned among France’s finest wines.

The Beaujolais nouveau experience, represented by the wonderful catch phrase « The same day, at the same time, all around the world » is so famous, that for 50 years, it has tended to overshadow great crus and terroirs, even making us virtually forget some truly outstanding crus.

Today, new pages of history are being written, as fine crus and terroirs once again come to the forefront Beaujolais Nouveau tasting will remain a joyous and festive occasion, an absolute must on the third Thursday in November every year; but traditional crus will once again set off to win over the world, with more structured wines, full of fruity and mineral flavors. These crus are more modern and easier to understand.

In a vineyard with difficult terrain− 30% steep slopes and a virtual patchwork of parcels, Dominique Piron is engaged in sustainable winegrowing. On winegrowing land filled with old broken-down granite and schist, the watchwords are natural balance and biodiversity. For vinification, our goal is to create terroir wines, wines of character, that remain fruity, subtle and elegant.

Gamay is the heart and soul of Beaujolais crus. A cross between the Pinot Noir and Gouais Blanc vine varieties, Gamay was originally imported from Croatia by the Huns in the 4th century. Gamay is a delicate variety and it is either excellent or nothing at all. At any rate, Gamay is a quite remarkable variety because it can either be enjoyed young for its fruitiness and elegance, or allowed to age, developing the structure and mineral qualities so appreciated by connoisseurs.
