2017 Lucien Lardy "Côte du Py" Morgon

SKU #1408156 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Black-cherry aromas and flavors are typical of this famous vineyard. They sing from this wine where they are balanced with serious tannins and acidity. The wine needs time and should not be drunk before 2021. *Cellar Selection* (RV)  (3/2019)

92 points Vinous

 Bright purple. A highly complex, expansive bouquet evokes ripe cherry and black raspberry, along with building floral and baking spice notes. Coats the palate with sweet red/blue fruit, violet pastille, licorice and spicecake flavors that become more lively on the back half. Delivers a suave blend of richness and energy and finishes impressively long and juicy, showing harmonious tannins and resonating florality.(JR)  (10/2019)

90 points James Suckling

 A classic Morgon with plenty of red-fruit character and an attractive combination of bright fruit, medium body and lively acidity on the palate. A touch of pithy blood-orange at the crisp finish. Drink now.  (1/2019)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The best of these offerings from Lardy, the 2017 Morgon Côte du Py exhibits sweet aromas of strawberry and plum preserve, framed by a subtle hint of wood. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and juicy, successful in its somewhat rustic style. (WK)  (9/2018)

Additional Information:



- Ah, poor, oft-maligned Gamay. Once widely planted in Burgundy, today the grape is largely confined to Beaujolais. The varietal, officially called Gamay Noir à Jus Blanc is vigorous, early-ripening and can grow in cooler climates. The grapes naturally high acidity, low tannins and low potential alcohol lends itself to exuberant, fruity wines, ranging from the early-release Beaujolais Nouveau, to the more serious Cru Beaujolais from villages like Brouilly, Moulin-à-Vent and St-Amour that are steadily gaining in popularity (and can age remarkably well). Outside of Beaujolais, Gamay is also grown in small amounts around the Loire where it is called Anjou Gamay and Gamay de Touraine. It is also grown in Burgundy's Côte Chalonnaise where it is blended with Pinot Noir, as it is in Switzerland.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- Region in east central France, often considered a part of Burgundy, but really quite distinct. The principal grape grown here is Gamay Noir. Familiar to many as the source of the Beaujolais Nouveau, the first wine of the vintage, Beaujolais is often fresh, fruity and very appealing red wine. Besides the straight Beaujolais, there is also Beaujolais Villages, and what is known as Cru Beaujolais. The 10 individual Crus, such as Moulin à Vent, Brouilly, Fleurie, Julienas, St. Amour and Chénas, each have their own character, and much more depth than someone who has only tried a simple Beaujolais could ever guess. These often represent value-priced, lovely, food-friendly wines.
