Most of Foillards’ vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard’s Morgons are deep, structured, and complex, with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young despite their aging potential. Jean raises his wines in older barrels sourced from top estates in Burgundy, a logical decision for someone crafting Gamay in a Burgundian style. It is the passion and dedication of vignerons like this that have brought pride back to the crusof the Beaujolais.
A magnificent wine, oozing finesse with a touch of acidity that follows through the whole tasting to then give way to a very delicate fruitiness. The red fruits intermingle with a variety of aromas that even include some spice notes. The finish is jammier, riper and above all of incredible length!
