This beautiful old property dates back to the middle ages and takes it's name from the Cote du Py which rises up on the western side of the chateau. There is an old Roman road close to the chateau which was the main route for goods heading north and the configuration of the chateau and its buildings is apparently very much in the style of a Roman villa.
Once a very large estate (which takes its name from the famous Cote du Py vineyard which rises up to the western side of the chateau) this property has changed hands several times over the past few decades and now consists of about 40ha of vineyards as well as the chateau. All of the vineyards of the estate are farmed organically and vinifications are made in a classic way with ferments taking place in cement tanks and for the cru's such as their Morgon a portion of roughly 25% ages in a variety of oak from barrels to larger foudres. These are wines of purity and generosity evident from very old vines. These are remarkably good values at each level. - Importer Note
