This wine used to come to us simply as Morgon Vieilles Vignes, without the name of the vineyard or lieu-dit (it is now labelled Morgon Les Délys Vignes plantées en 1926). It comes from a single hectare of 90-plus-year-old vines located on the Morgon-Chiroubles border, at the end of the Corcelette valley—a terroir historically known as Délys. The old, gnarled vines sit on a southeast-facing slope, planted at 10,000 vines per hectare.
Bouland admits that if he could find the grafting materials that he needs he would start to replant this ancient parcel—it yields too little juice for his liking. We hasten to disagree and are glad the required materials continue to elude him! It’s a stunning, deep, layered and complex masterpiece that in today’s market has no right to be released at this price. By rights, this should be the first cuvée to sell out, so get your motors running!
