Château Gaillard is a lieu-dit in the NE corner of Morgon in the climat of Douby, along the Fleurie border. Desvignes used to include this 1.03-hectare plot of 80-year-old, south-facing vines in their entry-level "La Voûte Saint-Vincent", but its strong old-vine character warranted its separation starting in 2020. The vines are planted on sandy granite soils, are certified-organic and harvested by hand. "The very old vine bottling of Morgon “Château Gaillard” from Domaine Louis Claude Desvignes is simply outstanding in 2022. The wine delivers a deep and youthfully complex aromatic constellation of black cherries,  dark berries, a touch of sweet cranberry, vinesmoke, pigeon, a gentle array of sweet herb tones, woodsmoke and granitic minerality. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a beautiful core of fruit, superb mineral drive and grip, ripe, well-integrated tannins and a long, tangy and very, very promising finish. This is a classic young Morgon from a great vintage" VFTC
