Jean Foillard Morgon 'Cote du Py'

Availability: In stock

When you first smell this wine, you'd probably guess it was a high quality Burgundy Pinot Noir... not a Gamay from Beaujolais!  Traditional wine making and meticulous care make this wine stand out.  Scents of rapsberry and dark cherry are incredibly intense and follow on through the palate.  Ripe red berries, cherry, and herbal hints make up the bouquet yet the structure is firm and confirms the real pedigree of this amazing wine.

Jean Foillard Morgon 'Cote du Py'
More information:

Jean Foillard’s estate comprises of 11 ha, including 5 ha in the fabled Côte de Py climat. Jean uses the minimal interventionist viticulture, but his wines are neither officially organic nor biodynamic even though he actually applies many of the rules. The use of oak is minimum as the fruit and great terroirs are let to express themselves.

Morgon Côte de Py is grown on arguably one of the best site of the entire Beaujolais region, where the vineyards grow on slopes with crumbly schists soil that give Gamay a unique expression. The hill is actually an extinct volcano, with lots of different types of soils depending of the plots.

"A lovely Gamay, made in a very positive, natural style. Lots of complexity, interest and purity, along with an appealing farmyard character plus sweet and sour red and black cherries. The fruit is plump and juicy, and there is a great balance between acidity and minerality so this will age very well. What an interesting wine!"  Decanter Magazine, December 2016 - One of the most exciting wines of 2016!
