    Domaine Calot  Winery Image

    The Calot family has cultivated vines and made wine in Beaujolais since the 1930s. From even the domaine's early days, it was clear that Domaine Calot made serious Beaujolais wines, bold, silky and age-worthy, from the finest terroirs in Morgon. 

    The family cares for some 25 acres of vineyard land, most of which is located in cru Morgon with other holdings in the general Beaujolais appellation. 

    Representing the family's second-generation, Jean Calot had always been a serious artist among too many casual grape growers, many of whom held that Beaujolais wines should be simple and fun, not profound or age-worthy. Each vintage, Calot wines prove that Gamay at its best can be as complex and long-lived as Burgundian Pinot Noir.

    Morgon is one of the more muscular and concentrated of Beaujolais’ crus. The family’s ancient vines (many 100 years old or older) deliver rich yet balanced flavors. One of the more rewarding cellar decisions you can make is to stash a few bottles of Calot Morgon in the cellar, to later discover the silky nuance and spice of well-aged cru Beaujolais.

    Jean passed away in 2015. His brother François, and François’ son Vincent, had for years worked by Jean’s side and are today ably continuing his vision. The family’s high-altitude vineyards are cared for according to sustainable principles, avoiding the use of pesticides and herbicides and farming as naturally as possible.

    Red Wine

    Celebrated as some of the best wine in the universe, red wine from Burgundy, otherwise known as red Burgundy, is Pinot noir. In fact Burgundy is the birthplace of Pinot noir and the source of the planet’s most sensual, delicate, valuable and sought-after Pinot noir wines.

    Understanding and enjoying red Burgundy can stay simple, with a basic knowledge of its subregions, become more intricate by dialing down to the villages and vineyards or become a life-long passion, exploring climats (plots of vines), vintages and the post French Revolution land ownership laws. In any case, a fine red Burgundy will display refined nuances of black currant, red fruit, earth, spice, alluring floral aromatics and have great elegance, complexity and longevity.

    Most famous, praised and collected of Burgunday are those from the Côte d'Or. Hundreds of millions of years ago, the area now called Côte d'Or was under a warm ocean whose sea floor has, over time, shifted and decomposed into various layers of limestone, sandstone and clay interspersed with ancient fossilized sea creatures. This is what is referred to as the famous escarpment upon which all of the highly sought-after Grands Crus and Premiers Crus vineyards can be found. In other words, from north to south, the best vineyards of Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée, Flagey-Echezeaux, Nuits-St-Georges, Aloxe-Corton, Pommard and Volnay follow the path of this ancient sea bed.
