Desvignes Morgon La Voute Saint-Vincent is a gorgeous expression of Gamay from the excellent 2015 vintage in Beaujolais. The family of Louis and Claude Desvignes has been making wine in the Morgon appellation of Beaujolais for 8 generations since 1712. The family is aptly named as Desvignes means "from the vines!" La Voute Saint-Vincent comes from 60-year-old parcels in the Douby sector in the north of Morgon near Fleurie. While Morgon is considered the most ageworthy of the Crus Beaujolais, La Voute Saint-Vincent is softer and more approachable-and absolutely irresistible now! No scores yet on this vintage, but this wine received ratings of 90 and 91 points from Parker's Wine Advocate on the two prior vintages. This one's another wine gem!
Desvignes Morgon La Voute Saint-Vincent is deep ruby-purple in color, medium in body, with soft, round tannins. It offers a beautiful nose and palate of cherries, raspberries, earth and spice. With well balanced fruit, acidity and tannins, the wine shows ripe red berries and resounding spiciness on the long finish.
Enjoy Desvignes Morgon La Voute Saint-Vincent over the next 5-7 years with roast chicken, grilled salmon, burgers, pasta and Thanksgiving turkey.
