馃崌 Gamay

Region: Beaujolais, Burgandy, France

Farming/Vinification:聽Most of the estate vineyards are planted on the C么te du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villi茅-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. These granite and schist soils sit on an alluvial fan at the highest point above the town and impart great complexity. However, great real estate is not the only key to Foillard鈥檚 success. Early on, Jean began to follow the teachings of Jules Chauvet, a traditionalist who defied everything that the more commercial brands were touting in the region. Jean and three other local vignerons, Marcel Lapierre, Jean-Paul Th茅venet, and Guy Breton, soon joined in on the movement.聽This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard鈥檚 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聽vignerons聽like this that have brought pride back to the聽crus of the Beaujolais.
Notes:聽Medium to full-bodied with silky, refined tannins: it's intensely flavored, deep and concentrated.聽Juicy and bright with聽wild strawberries, raspberries,聽white pepper and a lovely herbal allure. Aromas of peonies, orange rind, exotic spices and dark berries.聽
