The 2019 vintage in Beaujolais is stunning, and John Gilman calls it one of the best of all time. We are back with another classic offering from the natural master, Jean Foillard. A brilliant biodynamic farmer like Lapierre and Metras, Foillard has a more serious style that often reminds us of wines from Burgundy with their intricacy and nuance. These are also very age-worthy wines that can be surprising after a few years in the cellar and not dominated by pure fruit. We have all three of his top cuvees in stock right now, all of which are not to miss bottles of Beaujolais in 2019.
Sourcing from 'Les Charmes' the highest Lieu-Dits in the entire appellation, the wines Vines range from 45-50+ years old and the wine is aged in oak. The newest of Foillards cuvees interesting contrast to Cote du Py and Corcelette as it has the structure from the granite terroir of the former, but being the highest elevation vineyard in Morgon, it also has an elegance that leads to the finesse associated with the latter.
