Morgon "La Voûte Saint-Vincent"
100% Gamay. The beginning of the Desvignes range is La Voûte Saint Vincent, which comes from various estate parcels in the Morgon climat of Douby, north of and just below the Côte du Py. Douby has deep, sandier, granitic soils and yields a more supple style of Morgon compared to Py's famously muscular one. The vines for La Voûte average 50-60 years old. Viticulture and vinification are consistent across all Desvignes wines. The vines are certified-organic and harvested by hand. The clusters go through a semi-carbonic maceration in open-top concrete vats, with a maceration of 12-13 days with a submerged cap. A very small amount of sulfur is sometimes added after malo. The wine is aged in concrete and bottled in spring following the harvest with a light, non-sterile filtration. The wine is named for the vault or "voûte" of the old family house and for the patron saint of winemakers, St. Vincent.
