Wine Spectator chose this wine as one of its top 100 wines of 2019, awarding it 99th place. Domaines Piron makes traditional, honest, craftsman-like wines that are a perfect expression of their origin and terroir. The winery consistently endeavours to maintain a balance between fine tannins on the one hand and finesse and purity on the other. The Gamay grapes are hand-picked and then go through further selection on the sorting table prior to pressing. The wine undergoes classic fermentation on the skins for a period of 15 to 20 days, after which 30% of it is matured in wooden barrels and barriques. The Morgon cru is sited in the northern part of the Beaujolais region, which is part of Burgundy from a viticultural perspective. The majority of the vineyards face south-east and are located at an altitude of 200 to 300 metres. Like the other nine Beaujolais crus, Morgon is located on predominantly granite soil.
