The vintage rewards
Gilles Durand Daguin - 90/
"After solid studies in oenology and a detour through Oregon, Mes Godard, encouraged by her parents and her husband, sought to settle in Beaujolais and came across a retirement: 5 hectares in Morton on the most beautiful places called Cordelettes, Grand Cras and Cote de Py. The Godard style is pure wines that are never sterile, airy, but structured, which exude their origin. Everything is good."

"Coming from old gnarled vines on finely disintegrated rock, this Py reveals hints of damson under a plum-colored color. Its tactile texture delivers this good energy to the salivating gran."
"This Morgon, though powerful, has considerable elegance and great length. Its tannins are apparent, but supple and balanced by dark fruitiness and minerality. Give it a few years in the cellar or drink it now with a robust lamb stew."
William Kelley - 91+/
"Aromas of smoked meats, cherries, black currant, rich soil tones and violets introduce the 2018 Morgon Côte du Py, a medium to full-bodied, muscular and structured wine with a rich core of fruit, ripe acids and ample reserves of powdery tannin. This is denitely built to age and will reward at least a Variety: Gamay year or two of patience, as it's quite tightly wound at present."
JDD - Special Editions
"Magnificent, aromatic with finesse, silky mouth, very precise and caressing tamed tannins, we feel the structure of the terroir and the possible potential. Very beautiful wine from an estate that enchants us."
