Morgon

Like Brouilly, Morgon has a combination of relatively flat vineyard lands as well as a prime set of vineyards that fall on the hillside of a mount, in this case the Côte du Py. The wines of Morgon, and the Côte du Py in particular, are recognized as some of the finest of the entire appellation, and those with the greatest potential to improve in the bottle. The soil here, referred to as “rotten rock” in the local French, consists of broken slate to a large degree.
