  • This beautiful and powerful wine has a silky texture and graphite minerality that is typical of a Côte du Py. This wine needs 5 years ageing in order to soften.

    Domaine Piron can be found at the foot of the Côte de Py. It is run by the expert hand of Dominique Piron, aged 66, who has proved a worthy heir to 14 generations worth of wine making savoir-faire. In 1988 he became the first in Beaujolais to buy grapes rather than grow them himself, injecting a pioneering spirit into the region. He oversees some 80 hectacres in 16 different communes in Beaujolais but he is based principally in the symbolic Morgon appellation as well as the Chénas, the smallest appellation in Beaujolais. Despite the breadth of Piron’s domain, his wines are always in harmony with one another. He continues to produce reliable wines, vinified in a way that places emphasis on tradition and origin. In addition to the winegrowing, Piron is also involved in negociant activity. In July 2017 he became President of the board of Inter-Beaujolais U.I.V.B. for which he has big ambitions! Piron’s main area of focus is on the quailty of wines in the Beaujolais and the steps needed to protect the environment.
