2019 Frederic Berne, Morgon `Corcelette`

Brought up on a farm in Beaujolais, Frédéric Berne has always had a natural connection with the land around him. Encouraged by his parents to do something different, and attracted by wine’s ability to express its surroundings, he decided to become a winemaker. After a few years working across southern Burgundy, Frédéric finally set up on his own in 2013. Inspired by the diversity of the granite soils in Lantignié (close to Régnié and Chiroubles), Frédéric established himself in the grounds of Château de Vergers, in the heart of the village.

Frédéric has six hectares between Beaujolais Villages, Morgon and Chiroubles, and is currently converting all his vineyards to organic viticulture. The vineyards mainly sit on variations of granite bedrock with mineral components of quartz, which lend elegance and purity to the wines. His parcel of Morgon Corcelette, just over one hectare in size, is on sandy granite soil and sits at almost 400 metres elevation. The Corcelette vineyard is one of the most recognised climats of Morgon, producing wines of great intensity and mineral expression.

Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes were fermented whole-bunch for 11 days. They were then pressed using the Château’s old screw press. The wine spent six months ageing in concrete vats prior to bottling.
