Jean Foillard 'Côte du Py' Morgon, Beaujolais, France 2021

Jean Foillard inherited the domaine from his father in 1980 and revolutionized the perception of Beaujolais wine. As a devoted follower of Jules Chauvet's methods, and adopted practices such as organic viticulture, low yields, and extended whole cluster fermentation and barrel aging. Wine enthusiasts and professionals alike were captivated by these wines' evocative aroma, bold yet nuanced flavor, well-defined structure, and mineral notes. Foillard's wines have an exceptional aging capacity, so it's wise to purchase one for immediate enjoyment and save another for later. For any Beaujolais lover, Foillard's wines are an absolute must-try. While the Côte du Py boasts a profound structure and Corcelette offers a silky texture, Charmes offers a unique crunchiness with bright acidity and a leaner mineral profile.
