info from Maison L'Envoye:

"While some 44,000 acres of densely-planted Gamay Noir produce a swath of quaffable Beaujolais annually, devotees hold that Cru Beaujolais is where it’s at. Morgon, one of these ten Crus, comprises 2,750 acres of individually-staked gobelet vines on manganese and iron-rich, schist soils. This soil structure provides a minerally edge to the raspberry and dark red fruit characters typically seen. The famed Côte du Py, considered most representative of the Morgon Cru, sits at the highest point in Morgon atop an extinct volcano where hard, black soils produce complex, structured, age-worthy reds."
