About

92

Château de Pizay dates back to the 14th century, and is now an estate of more than 100ha. This is a serious Morgon with structure and body to match the dark berry fruits on the palate. Refreshing, savoury, juicy and smooth, there is more to this than just bright and vibrant fruit. A great partner with a plate of charcuterie. Drinking Window 2019 - 2022

Product Description:

This serious wine is still very young. Its black fruits & firm tannins are showing considerable potential, with acidity & a firm core still developing. This will be a powerful wine & one that needs to age. Manual grape-picking. The whole grapes are gathered in vats (no crushing, no destemming). Controlled temperature: 18-28° C. Cooling after pressing. Malolactic fermentation done after the end of the alcoholic fermentation. Maturing in stainless steel tanks. Fining with egg-whites. Natural tartaric stabilizing thanks to the cold winter temperature. 25% of the crop is kept for a while in new oak casks.
