Anita Kuhnel used to be a professional cyclist. With the same 'drive' she now puts all her energy into making Beaujolais wines at Domaine Anita. Anita only uses high quality terroirs. She makes wines from the Gamay grape that have received several high scores from renowned critics, including Robert Parker, James Suckling and Wine Enthusiast.

The Gamay grapes for this Anita Morgon Prestige come from the lieu-dit "Le Clachet" in the Morgon appellation. The soil of the vineyards consists of crystalline rock and slate at an altitude of 290 meters and is oriented to the south/southeast. The vines are 60 years old. The grapes are picked and selected by hand in the vineyard. The grapes are partially destemmed and first undergo a cold week of 4 days. Then fermentation begins, with the 'cap' (the skins that float to the top) being pushed down daily to extract more flavor and tannins. The fermentation takes about 24 days. After fermentation, the wine matures for 6 months in a combination of oak barrels and cement tanks.

In the glass, the Anita Morgon Prestige is very Burgundian. It has a deep garnet color and on the nose it presents a harmonious marriage of wood with toasted bread and fruitiness. Dominated by notes of black cherries. In the mouth the tannins are well integrated with a beautiful long aftertaste.

Vineyard for 2022 Domaine Anita Morgon Prestige

Anita Kuhnel used to be a professional cyclist. With the same drive, she now puts all her energy into making Beaujolais wines at Domaine Anita. Anita only uses high-quality terroirs for this. With this she makes wines from the Gamay grape that has already received several high scores from renowned critics, including Robert Parker, James Suckling and Wine Enthusiast.

Anita Kuhnel will retire from cycling in 2015 and will make it her mission to create top Beaujolais. She buys carefully selected terroirs in the crus Moulin-à-Vent, Morgon, Chénas and Fleurie. The de-stalking of grapes and the use of wood give extra depth to her wines. Sulfite use is kept to a minimum. Her wines are particularly rich, concentrated wines that live up to the full potential of Gamay and also have a very good aging potential. Chénas is one of the smallest crus of Beaujolais and therefore a Beaujolais not often seen. The soils contain a lot of granite, which causes the vines to root more deeply. That gives small, concentrated grapes with a lot of taste. Morgon is one of the richest Beaujolais styles. The soils consist of granite and schist, of volcanic origin. With a lot of iron in the soil, the wines have more structure and earthy notes. What is exceptional about Moulin-à-Vent is the high amount of manganese in the granite soils. This manganese limits the yield, making the wines extra concentrated and deeper in taste, with more tannins. It is the fullest of all Beaujolais crus, and can also age very well. In Fleurie, Anita makes the Fleurie Poncié, which stands out for its strong floral, aromatic character.
