Domaine Jean Foillard
As many of you well know, the wines of Jean Foillard represent a true traditional style of Beaujolais. His iconic Côte du Py sells out every single vintage and the recently offered 2018 was no exception… so we are delighted to have a nice parcel of the latest Cuvée Classique to offer for immediate delivery.
Whilst not quite as intense as the aforementioned Côte du Py – this wine is not to be underestimated – Jean Foillard doesn’t make ‘normal’ wines and this stunning 2018 is another excellent vintage.
William Kelley for Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate is a huge admirer of Foillard’s work, or to put it in his own words ‘I regularly purchase these wines for my own cellar and warmly recommend them to readers.’ He goes on to endorse the latest release by saying ‘followers of the estate won’t be disappointed by the newly released 2018′
As with its ‘big brother’ I cannot recommend this wine highly enough and it’s certainly worth taking a couple of cases to enjoy immediately or over the next year or so. You are warned, this wine is VERY drinkable indeed – also perfect when served slightly chilled.
2018 Morgon Cuvée Classique, Jean Foillard
‘Packed full of vibrant crunchy red berry fruit; think cherries, raspberries, and a touch of violet. Developing on the palate with a well balanced mouth watering freshness. A smooth, long, almost silk-like finish with a touch of oriental five spice and succulent juicy tannins– truly gorgeous!’ – James Snoxell, Fine Wine Buyer (Bancroft Wines)
