Domaine de Colonat
Christine and Bernard Collonge were fresh-faced twenty-somethings when they took over the Collonge family holdings in the Beaujolais town of Villié-Morgon in 1977. Today their son Thomas assists them in the production of their stellar lineup of cru Beaujolais.
A word about cru Beaujolais. The 10 designated “cru” villages of Beaujolais [of which Morgon is one, since 1936] are the finest, best-drained, highest-altitude sites in the region. Cru is to “regular” Beaujolais what Mercedes-Benz is to Kia. Cru wines are typically vinified like red burgundy, and raised in large neutral oak casks. These are not the light, bubble-gummy, skinny wines made carelessly from shamefully big crop loads. They are serious, complex, age-worthy reds for connoisseurs.
