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.
"One of the superstars of Morgon, Jean Foillard took over at the estate in 1980. Along with Marcel Lapierre and Jean-Paul Thevenet, the philosophy here is minimal intervention, late harvesting, ultra-rigorous grape selection and minimal sulphur usage. This wonderful Côte du Py does not disappoint with sweet dark fruit, all perfectly balanced by acidity, mineral notes on the palate, ultra-refined oak and a spicy, exotic finish. A very fine wine, able to compete with top Premier Cru Côte d'Or wines." 95 points (2018 vintage), Decanter
"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
