Desvignes, Louis-Claude 2022 Morgon La Voute St. Vincent

Out of stock

The beginning of the Desvignes range is "La Voûte Saint Vincent", named for the vault or "voûte" of the old family house and for the patron saint of winemakers. It is a blend of certified-organic estate parcels totalling 4.5 hectares in the climat of Douby, which lies in the northeast corner of Morgon along the border of Fleurie. The La Voûte vines average 45 years old and are planted in sandy, decomposed-granite soils. Harvest is manual. The bunches are generally left about 50% whole-cluster and 50%-destemmed and gently pressed into closed concrete vats for a partly carbonic fermentation; maceration is 10-12 days with a submerged cap and no punchdowns. Upon opening it shows an abundance of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit with a hint of bright raspberry lurking behind some herbal, almost vegetal notes. After an hour or so the red fruit shines through and balances out the savory components nicely. There's structure but it doesn't feel heavy, with subtle tannins and balanced acid. This is tasty and approachable now but will continue to develop over the next five years.
