Maison Passot Morgon 2015
Maison Passot is a small 11 hectare family property spread over 4 crus in Beaujolais. Owners Dominique, Rémy and Simon continue the family tradition, going back generations. The family tends 21 plots - half of which are in Chiroubles, one quarter in Morgon, and smaller holdings in Fleurie and Régnié - in addition to some Viognier vines. All farming follows strict tenets of la lutte raisonnée for a more “natural” wine, surrounded by signs of life and rich biodiversity. Hand harvested.
Located north of Lyon in eastern France, Beaujolais overlaps Burgundy in the north and Rhône in the south. The picturesque Beaujolais vineyards run along the Saône River where the Crus form a meandering path on the granite terrain. From south to north, Brouilly is followed by Côte de Brouilly, Régnié, Morgon, Chiroubles, Fleurie, Moulin-à-Vent, Chénas, Juliénas and Saint-Amour.
90 points VIN, Josh Raynolds
“Inky ruby. Smoke-accented dark berries, licorice and a hint of cola on the deeply perfumed nose. Fleshy and seamless on the palate, offering lush boysenberry and cherry liqueur flavors that show good depth and no rough edges. In an ample but energetic style, finishing sweet
and long; fine-grained tannins contribute gentle grip.” - Josh Raynolds 13% Alc.
