Thibault Ducroux Morgon Corcelette 2022

Morgon, Beaujolais Villages, Beaujolais, Burgundy, FranceThibault Ducroux grew up in a winemaking family in Bojo but was inspired towards natural wines through reading Jules Chauvet. After working with some natural winemakers in Bojo and Jura, he began his winery with 1.25ha owned vines and 6.5ha total via long-term contracts, all organically farmed and in conversion. This was his 3rd vintage of Corcelette, from 50-year-old vines on pink granite and schist. Grapes were whole bunch, carbo, native ferment, and aged in old barriques for eight months before bottling without fining or filtration and minimal SO2. Fragrant plums, peonies, and raspberry blossoms flood this pretty Corcelette, with long, fine tannins framing, and an easy buoyant acidity to lift. Very pure, and very charming.Tasted: 12 April 2024Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
