Jean Foillard took over the domaine from his father in 1980 & helped change the way the world looks at Beaujolais.  As a devout follower of Jules Chauvet, Foillard implemented low yields, organic viticulture, long slow, whole cluster fermentation and aging in old barrels.  Consumers & wine professionals started taking more than just a second look at these wines.  The wines are hauntingly aromatic, bold yet subtle and have great structure and mineral driven components.  Foillard's wines have incredible aging potential.  The Charmes lieu-dit, one of the highest parcels in the appellation. In contrast to the grandiose, deeply structured Côte du Py and silky-smooth Corcelette, this cuvée features a bit more crunch with lots of bright acidity and a leaner, more mineral profile.

Pairing: Roasted chicken

Grape: Gamay (10-90 years old vines) from Côte du Py

Soil: Schist, Granite, Manganese.  These granite and schist soils sit on an alluvial fan at the highest point above the town

Vinification & Aging: Traditional, whole cluster fermentation lasts from 3-4 week, Aged for 6-9 months in used oak barrels.

Viticulture: Certified Organic
