Dominique Morel, Beaujolais-Villages 2018
Dominique's philisophy is to make wines that he likes to drink. Sourced from parcels of old bush-vines, his Beaujolais-Villages has plenty of fruit and a rounded mouthfeel. It encapsulates the approachable style of Beaujolais-Villages.
The vineyards face south west and cover 12 hectares. The Beaujolais-Villages is sourced from densely planted bush vines, which seem to give a degree of bramble-fruit potency more akin to the region's Cru wines. The average age of these goblet-trained vines is 45 years with an average yield of 50 - 55 hectolitres per hectare. Soils here are poor, stony and granitic, accounting for the perfume and finesse so characteristic of the good wines of this region. The grapes are all hand harvested.
Pre-fermentation maceration of the whole bunches was followed by semi-carbonic maceration. Dominique allowed the temperature to rise for a couple of hours only, which helped with the extraction of colour, aroma and tannins. Then, after chilling, the fermentation took place over seven to eight days. Minimum handling techniques were employed and the wine stayed in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks after fermentation.
At its best, Beaujolais is a deeply pleasurable wine and Morel's wines encapsulate this style better than most. Dominique Morel has 12 hectares of vineyard in Beaujolais and Fleurie. The vines are up to 70 years old, something that accounts for the intensity of his wines. To sum up his philosophy, Morel says: "I make wines that I like to drink, with lots of fruit, good colour and a rounded mouth-feel''.
