Morgon Cote du Py
Domaine Jean Marc Burgaud
Burgaud’s 2009 Morgon Cote de Py Reserve will consist of selected barrels from some of his oldest vines, probably including one barrel of Javernieres. I tasted a range of these, but inevitably tasted a less-close approximation to the finished blend, since each barrel Burgaud elects to include or to kick back to the “regular” bottling has less impact on that blend than it does on this limited reserve. Nutmeg-tinged blackberry and black raspberry inform the nose as well as the confitured, strikingly creamy and silken yet at the same time bright and vibratory palate, with toasted almond, peat, meat marrow, and burley tobacco adding dark complexity. This finishes with real authority. While Burgaud would normally wait until November to bottle a reserve, he has been contemplating moving up that date for this vintage.
If there were any doubt that Jean-Marc Burgaud’s talents match his considerable ambitions, his 2009s should put them to rest, as few if any finer collections of Beaujolais are likely to have been rendered in this or any other vintage. “They tasted good on the vine, good in the fermenter, good before malo, good after malo, and, so far, good in the bottle. Good balance, fine acidity, perfect maturity, zero grams of unfermented sugar, and alcohol from 13% to 13.5% – excellent but not excessive,” is the way Burgaud laughingly litanizes his results, but the wines are far more colorful – indeed, exciting – than that summary suggests. Given their quality and distinctiveness, one has to forgive Burgaud his proliferation of cuvees – indeed, anybody lucky enough to latch onto a share of his limited bottlings from this vintage will want to profusely thank him! Burgaud elected to give his early bottlings a light filtration – and was contemplating the same approach for his (“regular”) Cote de Py – because he said he wanted to preserve their vivid fruit, whereas they would have had to stay in barrel through summer to clarify sufficiently on their own. (If there were any ill-effects of that filtration on his early bottlings, I clearly couldn’t discern them.) Except for his three rarest cuvees – aged entirely in demi-muids or barriques – elevage of each Burgaud wine is spread between tank and demi-muids. 92-93+ point Parker.
