Deep red colour with cherry compote infused with star anise on the nose. The concentrated palate is serious and densley fruity. well structure tannins suggest good ageing potential.

'Les Charmes' is one of the most prestigious of the six lieux-dit within Morgon, situated on higher slopes with sandy, granitic soils. South east facing Gamay vines, which are between 35 and 60 years of age, are managed following the principles of reasoned viticulture, using methods such as tillage (to control weeds), disbudding (to manage yields) and green harvesting.Following parcel selection, grapes are harvested by hand into small 20kg boxes, sorted with the help of a vibrating table before traditional vinification in concrete vats, using only wild yeasts present on the grape skins. The wine is aged for 6 months and bottled after a light filtration.

Within the eastern part of the cru Beaujolais appellation of Morgon there are two hilltop vineyards in - La Côte de Py and Les Charmes. Domaine de Lathevalle's Morgon comes from the latter, covering 10 hectares in one piece and enjoying a particularly interesting exposure due to its south east facing slopes. Since 2017 Lathevalle has been owned by Patrice du Jeu of Les Héritiers Saint-Genys; his eye for spotting potentially great terroir and a philosophy based on ‘the attachment to soils, respect of the vineyard and passion for wine’, leading him to this vineyard.

Try with Beef Bourgignon or a roasted leg of lamb. Also works with charcuterie and with a semi soft cheese such as Livarot or a Saint-Marcellin.
