Gamay, Domaine Louis Claude Desvignes
The beginning of the Desvignes range is La Voûte Saint Vincent, which comes from various estate parcels in the Morgon climat of Douby, north of and just below the Côte du Py. Douby has deep, sandier, granitic soils and yields a more supple style of Morgon compared to Py's famously muscular one. The vines for La Voûte average 50-60 years old. The wine is named for the vault or "voûte" of the old family house and for the patron saint of winemakers, St. Vincent.
The 2021 Morgon La Voûte Saint-Vincent offers up aromas of smoky berries, plums and peonies, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and perfumed palate that's supple and lively.
