The Ruet estate has been family owned and operated at the foot of Mont Brouilly since 1926. They have parcels in different appellations in Northern Beaujolais, offering a way for people to compare the terroirs of each from the same producer to really pick up on the subtle nuances. From Morgon they make “Douby” and “Les Grands Cras,” from Chiroubles is “La Fontenelle” and from Brouilly is “Voujon.” They still use traditional methods including semi-carbonic maceration for all of their wines and grow organically in the vineyards. "Douby" is the climat above the "Côte de Py" where the soil is less granitic and more decomposed rock with manganese and schist, and the wine is fermented in stainless steel where it rests for 10 months after. The wines from Morgon tent to be more powerful than other appellations in Beaujolais, and this example is no exception. Dark ruby in color and medium-bodied, it displays mostly bright red fruit with some deep plum notes and a touch of licorice on the finish. Organically grown.
