La Voute Saint-Vincent is the entry-level wine of Domaine Louis-Claude Desvignes, a superb producer located in Villié-Morgon and managed by Claude-Emmanuelle Desvignes and his brother Louis-Benoît since 2002. The vineyard is 13 hectacres with vines around 60 years old both in Douby and the Côte de Py. Each plot is vinified separately so that they better embody their individual terroir. They also undergo a long maturation process. This domain produces beautiful examples of Morgon terroirs and undoubtedly holds a place amongst the best domains in Beaujolais.
The Saint Vincent comes from Douby. Fruit forward, with plenty of character. The nose boasts aromas of raspberry, cherry and blackberry. On the palate it is rounded with pleasant acidity and a good, long finish.
