Jean Foillard Morgon 'Cote du Py'

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.

"Crushed violets and attractive dark strawberries and raspberries on the nose with a slightly flinty, stony edge of graphite. The palate has depth and density, which set it apart from the Corcelette. More depth and richness here. A long, powerful and deep-set palate. Acidity holds the finish fresh." 96 points, James Suckling

"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!"
