Domaine de Gry Sablon

Beaujolais-Villages 2005



History and Philosophy

Domaine de Gry-Sablon is situated in Emeringes, a village made up of slopes that face the southern sun. Dominique Morel owns 16 hectares and only vinifies his own grapes. Apart from Morgon, he also produces Fleurie, Juliénas, Régnié, St Amour as well as three colours of Beaujolais-Villages. The domaine was created in the early 1900s when Mr Cinquin - great-grand-father of Mr Albert Morel - arrived in Emeringes. In 1991 Dominique Morel, an oenologist, joined his father.

The research efforts in the last few years have led to the invention of an MPC device (Prefermentation Warm Maceration). This system extracts more colour and ripe berry aromas by warming up the grapes for 8 hours before the fermentation starts. 30% of Beaujolais houses (and Burgundy) are now equipped with this device.
