Style: Red wine – Medium bodied, juicy and refreshing
Tasting Note: Attractive redcurrant fruit aromas, on the palate the wine is full of generous red fruit flavours, there is plenty of structure and excellent acidity lifting a long and juicy finish.
Food Pairing: Gamay’s high natural acidity and low tannin allows the wine to pair well with a wide array of foods. A great choice for the main event at Christmas, also pairs well with Chicken Paté, duck, beef, sausages, salmon, mushroom dishes, copes well with an assortment of herbs and spices, great with cheeses such as Comté, Brie, Mimolette, Saint-Nectare and Gruyère.

Jean-Marc Burgaud is based in the Village of Morgon one of the most celebrated of Crus in Beaujolais. In 1989 he began his career with just one hectare in Morgan and Beaujolais Village.
Recently Jean-Marc was dubbed ‘Monsieur Côte du Py’ by Bourgogne Aujourd’hui magazine. His fine domaine has seven hectares of vineyard on the Côte du Py in Morgon, making the Burgaud family the biggest owner of vines on this famous hill. Jean-Marc is originally from Lantignié and his wife, Christine, is from Morgon, the 11.5 hectares in Morgon were inherited from her side of the family. “My father used to tell me that Lantignié produced the best Beaujolais, but when I first met Christine, her father opened a 20-plus-year-old bottle of Côte du Py for me and that opened my eyes to the potential of Beaujolais,” he explains. Today, the domaine has 18 hectares of vineyards across Beaujolais Villages, Morgon and Régnié.
