Domaine des Souchons Côte du Py 2016 has received a mention in the 2019 Hachette Wine Guide!
« A wine partially aged in 400L barrels, allowing better integration of the oak characters. It offers a well-balanced, elegant, medium bodied profile. »
Our estate is one of the oldest in the appellation and has continued to expand since the 1950s. In 1985, we were able to take advantage of the division of the Morgon appellation area into 6 climates, including the Côte du Py, which covers 3 hectares of the estate.
Côte du Py is a volcanic hill towering over the middle of the Morgon appellation with south-southeast exposure. The soil is composed of manganese-rich schist which breaks down into clayey soils.
Although our vinification is traditional, we conduct a slow running fermentation process which allows us to extract the intensity of the colours and aromas.
