Wine of the Week

Dominique Piron

2020 Morgon Côte du Py

Burgundy, France

$27.99, $25.19 for Wine Club Members or by the case.

To be named Wine of the Week for such an auspicious food and wine day is in line with being voted Most Likely to Succeed. Pressure! We put serious consideration into the decision of what to present to you for such substantial and significant meals. We want your holiday to be as good as it can be.  We captured this wine back September just for this weeks feature.  Yes, we are talking THE Dominique Piron, and specifically Piron's super cult Morgon from 50-80 year old vines planted on the insane blue soil only found on the Côte de Py slope. From the phenomenal 2020 vintage, this is something to greatly enjoy with family and friends this Thanksgiving.

"This structured wine from vines planted on the volcanic soil of the Côte de Py slope is young but already impressive. Brimming with intense black-cherry fruit and a slew of spices.  It offers up big structure that's been precisely crafted to hold all the beautiful madness together."
 "95 Points" The Wine Enthusiast.

Côte du Py

Cru Morgon, one of the famous Cru Beaujolais, is based in the heart of northern Beaujolais. Côte du Py is the heart of Morgon, a little hill of very old blue stone rocks, the oldest soils of Beaujolais (around 400,000 millions years old), with a very blue characteristic color.
It is known for centuries in Morgon that Côte du Py is the best terroir of the village, producing long lived wines with strong structure and flavors.

Dominique Piron’s family has been growing grapes here since the 16th century, and Dominique took over the estate in 1971. Piron farms 100 acres of vineyards scattered among several different crus in Beaujolais, namely Morgon, Chénas, Brouilly, Régnié and Moulin-à-Vent. He owns some parcels, rents others, and also buys 50 acres worth of carefully selected grapes from their neighbors. Regardless of where the grapes are sourced, Piron is responsible for every aspect of quality-control from the vineyard management to the marketing of the finished wine. They takes such great care of each of their crus that even the simple Beaujolais and Beaujolais-Villages wines are carefully selected from single-vineyard parcels. Each of their terroirs is unique, yet they are all granite-based soils—the ideal grounding for the Gamay grape. Piron farms sustainably, although he has also been experimenting with organic methods to achieve a rich biodiversity in the vineyards.

Ultimate Thanksgiving Wine


 Let's get right to it. My favorite wine (today...) is Gamay! Without a doubt, this is my all time favorite varietal for Thanksgiving.  

 One of the ultimate regions in the wine world is Beaujolais, located north of the supremely incredible food city of Lyon in eastern France. Beaujolais overlaps Burgundy in the north and Rhône in the south. The picturesque Beaujolais vineyards ramble along the Saône River, where winemakers have crafted deliciously supple and fruity wines since the days of Ancient Rome. The people of Lyon will tell you there are 3 rivers that flow through the region: The Rhône, the Saône and the Beaujolais!  We concur! Listed below are just a handful of Beaujolais we LOVE.  To see our entire list of Bojo's

Dupre Beaujolais Villages 2020 

$14.99, $13.49 for Wine Club Members

Jean-Michel Dupre makes a few renowned Cru Beaujolais. The 1940 is a cuvee from all of his vineyards. The name is a nod to the year the vines were planted. The old vines lay the foundation for a powerful wine with ripe tannins. The nose shows lively blackcurrants, while the palate shows black cherry and berries with a mineral character on the finish. This is a succulent wine made from 80 year old vines, and is an incredible value for its price point. 

Franck Decrenisse Coteaux du Lyonnais 2019

$15.99, $14.39 for Wine Club Members

Coteaux Du Lyonnais is a little AOC all on its own. It is located between Beaujolais to the north and Cote Du Rhone to the south, but doesn’t fall under either of their umbrellas. The region gets all of its winemaking influence from Beaujolais. The vineyard this bottle comes from has 60+ year old vines, making this an amazing value for old vines. This wine is great for a crowd and priced accordingly. 

The semi-carbonic vinification expresses its aromas through characteristic notes of red fruits, blackcurrant, strawberry and raspberry with baking spices and spiky licorice. 

Anne Sophie Dubois

Anne-Sophie Dubois is part of a young generation of winemakers redefining the identity of Beaujolais. She fell in love with Gamay and decided that Fleurie was where she wanted to call home. Her domaine is composed of almost twenty acres in the heart of Fleurie that are all organically farmed. Most of her plots are old vines; her oldest are 60+ years old. She uses minimal filtration and sulfites in all of her wines. Anne Sophie wines are clearly a staff favorite here at Seifert & Jones.

Fleurie les Cocottes 2021

$24.99, $22.49 for Wine Club Members 

Anne Sophie makes Les Cocottes with 100% whole cluster and using carbonic maceration. It is released the spring after the vintage and is intended to be fruit-driven and drunk early & often. This wine is a wine of friendship, spontaneous and joyful.

The 2021 is vinified in whole clusters and matured in old barrels. Bright and crisp with red berry, tart cherries, pomegranate and white pepper, this is a purposefully youthful and bright wine.

Fleurie l'Alchimiste 2020

$25.99, $23.39 for Wine Club Members 

100% destemmed, L'Alchimiste is a selection of vines over forty years of age. It is aged for around 15 months in a combination of cement and a range of different sized neutral oak barrels. Red and dark berried fruits are cushioned by mineral and black tea nuances. The palate is seamless and elegant. This is a dry, light bodied wine with lively acidity and fine tannins. 

Fleurie les Labourons 

$28.99, $26.09 for Wine Club Members 

This is a selection of the best fruit from all the old vine parcels. Les Labourons is the name of the lieu dit in Fleurie. It is 100% destemmed and aged for around 13 months in neutral oak barrels. This is a complex and dense wine.

The wine retains a fresh and spirited fruit profile, but is still focused and structured. Juicy blackberry and strawberry notes mingle with lavender and the unique granitic mineral profile. Its elegant and velvety texture leads into fine-point tannins. 

Jean Paul Brun Domaine des Terres Dorées Beaujolais l'Ancien 2021 

$27.99, $25.19 for Wine Club Members 

"Pretty and perfumed, the 2021 Beaujolais l’Ancien bursts with scents of plums, cherries, sweet spices and licorice. Medium-bodied, lively and fleshy, with melting tannins and mouthwatering acids, it will delight readers nostalgic for a cooler, crunchier style of Beaujolais than recent vintages have tended to deliver. 90 Points" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Diochon Moulin a Vent Vieilles Vignes 2020

$24.99, $22.49 for Wine Club Members

"The 2020 Moulin-à-Vent Vieilles Vignes has turned out brilliantly, bursting with aromas of cherries, cassis, sweet spices, rose petals and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, it's gourmand but remarkably elegant, with powdery tannin, lively acids and a seamless, charming profile. As readers will remember, this ultra-traditional cuvée is mostly whole cluster and sees a classic two-week maceration with submerged cap before maturation in foudre. 94 points" Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Clos de la Roilette Fleurie 2021

$26.99, $24.29 for Wine Club Members 

This is as lively as they come. High-toned aromas of blackberry liqueur, wild strawberry and violets open into a meaty palate with earthy dark fruits and a mineral finish. Wonderfully expressive. 

“Bursting with aromas of crunchy red berries, peonies, spices and plums, it's medium-bodied, ample and enveloping, with succulent acids, melting tannins and a pretty, perfumed finish. 94 points” Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 

Jean Foillard 

Jean Foillard is, without a doubt, among the most talented vignerons in the Beaujolais. Since Kermit Lynch began importing his wines in the early 1990s, Jean has toiled away in his two core crus, Morgon and Fleurie, perfecting the marriage of natural viticulture and winemaking to the region’s noblest terroirs. This combination yields wines that reach, year in and year out, the pinnacle of hedonistic, intoxicating, and soulful Beaujolais. 

Beaujolais Villages 2020 

$24.99, $22.49 for Wine Club Members 

This bottle way over-performs for its price. A heady perfume and silky texture are channeled through a light, ethereal frame. Notes are bright and fresh, with crunchy cranberry, black cherry, bramble fruit and graphite. This is incredibly versatile on the table.

Morgon Cuvee Corcelette 2020 

$44.99, $40.49 for Wine Club Members 

“The 2020 Morgon Corcelette come from 80-year-old vines and is aged in cement vat. It has a pretty nose of black cherries, blueberry and violet, all nicely defined. The palate is soft and supple on the entry with caressing tannins, a very attractive mouthfeel and admirable purity toward the finish. This is a lovely early-bottling Morgon that should age well in bottle. 92 points” Vinous 

Morgon Cote du Py 2020 

$46.99, $$42.29 for Wine Club Members 

"Deep, shimmering violet. Powerful, spice-tinged red and blue fruit preserve and floral pastille aromas are complemented by suggestions of musky earth and licorice. Alluringly sweet and seamless in the mouth, offering sappy, mineral-driven black raspberry, cherry liqueur, lavender and five-spice powder flavors that expand through the back half. Finishes extremely long and nervy, with harmonious tannins building steadily and adding solid grip to reverberating cherry and floral notes. 95 Points" Vinous

Morgon Eponym 2019 

$49.99, $44.99 for Wine Club Members

"Glistening ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented cherry, black raspberry, violet and black cardamom scents pick up a spicy nuance as the wine opens up. Chewy and tightly wound on entry, offering juicy dark berry, bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors that deepen and slowly spread out through the back half. Shows firm tension and impressive energy on a very long, mineral-driven finish framed by polished, even tannins. 94 Points" Vinous

Fleurie 2020 

$51.99, $46.79 for Wine Club Members 

"Fresh hay on the nose, wet wheat field and moss. Light and living, charged with herbs, cranberry, and strawberry. Jean’s wines, like the Beaujolais itself, have a way of bringing you squarely home. The wine smells like the earth right before it rains and tastes like the pine forests high on the hills and the wild fruits in the underbrush. This is pure Beaujolais, and there is nothing better." Kermit Lynch Imports
