The appellation of Morgon is situated entirely within the parish of Villie-Morgon where the soil sets its wines apart from the other ‘Crus' since the percentage of sand and shale is higher here due to the particular way in which the local schist layers have weathered. Consequently the wines are firmer and darker in colour than the other ‘Crus'.
The soil in the vineyards in Morgon is of pink schistous granite, producing wines that combine finesse, aromatic richness and structure.
The average age of the vines are 30 years with an average yield of 50 hl/ha.
Harvested by hand.
