About the wine:

Traditional, whole cluster fermentation lasts from 3-4 weeks
Aged for 6-9 months in used oak barrels
Sourced exclusively from the Les Charmes vineyard, the highest altitude lieu-dit in the appellation

The third and latest addition to Jean Foillard’s stellar lineup of Morgons comes from the Charmes lieu-dit, one of the highest parcels in the appellation. In contrast to the grandiose, deeply structured Côte du Py and silky-smooth Corcelette, this cuvée features a bit more crunch with lots of bright acidity and a leaner, more mineral profile. It nonetheless shares the satin texture of all Foillard Morgons, and should age similarly well for those willing and able to wait.

About the producer:

This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard’s 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 vignerons like this that have brought pride back to the crusof the Beaujolais.
