Winemaker Notes

With destemmed grapes, long fermentation, and matured in oak barrels, this wine is stylish and characterful with a Burgundian feel.

Lightly oaked with vanilla accents, rich on the palate, generous and silky, underpinned with well-structured tannins. An untypical Morgon, but remarkable for its harmony and elegance.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Morgon Charmes was cropped at 40 hectoliters per hectare from 65-year-old vines. It has a clean and precise bouquet with dark cherries, blackcurrant and violet aromas. The palate is well balanced with supple tannin, very well judged acidity and a seamless, silky smooth, utterly delightful finish that leaves a residue of spice tingling on the tongue. What a great Morgon from winemaker James Wilding!

Chateau Grange Cochard Winery Image
An historic estate with some of the finest parcels of vines in the region, Chateau Grange Cochard has been producing fine wines since 1759. Sarah and James Wilding purchased this formidable estate in 2008 and are actively rejuvenating it to bring it to its full potential and to produce fine world class wines.
Chateau Grange Cochard produces small quantities of Morgon from estate grown grapes only. They have some exceptional parcels of vines, the majority being in excess of 50 years old which give complexity and intensity to the fruit. Grass is used extensively between the rows, no insecticides are applied and no artificial irrigation or watering systems are used. The harvest is done carefully and very selectively by hand. Their flagship wine is the Cote du Py with it’s unique bluish-tinted volcanic soil situated literally at the top of the Cote du Py!

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais exist though most is sold under the basic Beaujolais appellation. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Beaujolais-Villages, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior section are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines predominantly from Beaujolais. In Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
