Wines of the Côte du Py are very dark and profound, very dense. Aromas are very classic of cherry, kirsh and stone of the fruits. Very mineral, graphite, spices like black and white pepper. Wine can live a long life, more than 25 years old for the best vintages is not a problem! Older gamays of Côte du Py smells like old rose, and floral aromas. Young, it is better to drink them at 16/17°C, and older around 18°C. Côte du Py being a quite strong wine, it goes very well with red meat like beef, but also duck and why not game during the fall (Hare, Dear, Wild Pork,...) and good cheses.

Wine SpectatorA vivid minerally undertone marks the pure raspberry and ripe cherry flavors, accented by licorice and floral details that give way to white pepper and wild herb elements on the long, lightly tannic finish. Drink now through 2024. 3,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.

Wine AdvocateThe 2017 Morgon Côte du Py from Dominique Piron reveals aromas of cherries and herbs, followed by a firm, chewy and astringent palate dominated by tannin at the expense of fruit. Can this be a representative showing?
