Morgon La Voûte Saint-Vincent


Louis-Claude Desvignes is a family estate that dates back to 1700. The Desvignes range is “La Voûte Saint Vincent”, named for the vault or “voûte” of the old family house and for the patron saint of winemakers. It was Louis-Claude who began to turn the estate’s grapes into wine, and now with the reins handed over to his two sons Louis-Benoît and Claude-Emmanuelle Desvignes.

It is a blend of certified-organic estate parcels totalling 4.5 hectares in the climat of Douby, which lies in the northeast corner of Morgon along the border of Fleurie. The La Voûte vines average 50 years old and are planted in Douby’s typical sandy, decomposed-granite soils. Viticulture and vinification are consistent across all Desvignes wines. In the case of La Voûte, the parcels are all vinified separately.

Vinification Bunches are harvested by hand and mainly left in whole clusters for a semi-carbonic fermentation in closed concrete vats. Maceration is around 10 days with a submerged cap and no punchdowns. A very small amount of sulfur is added after malo and sometimes at bottling. The wine is aged in concrete for 7-9 months and bottled with a light, non-sterile filtration.
Closure Natural Cork
Cellaring/Ageing Potential Some potential but it is recommended to be drunk young
