Following the hand harvest, the fruit was 70% de-stemmed and fermented in cement tanks for 10 days, with some carbonic maceration. Following the malo-lactic fermentation the wine is racked and left in tank on fine lees for 7 months prior to bottling.

Behind the 1722 entrance, the Domaines Louis-Claude Desvignes’s Cellars unveil 8 centuries of continuous production of Morgon from estate vineyards, 5 ha of which are in the most celebrated Cru of Cote du Py (including some 100 year old vines in Javernieres), and 8 Ha in Douby. Today brother and sister, Louis-Benoit and Claude, together carry forward the familial traditions of the Domaine. The soils are crumbly, crystalline rich in iron oxides, with layers of manganese, schists and ancient volcanic rock. All the wines are vinified and aged in cement tanks, with the aim of accentuating the minerality of the wines of Morgon.
