Via Kermit Lynch (importer):
+ 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 Morgon wines, and should age similarly well (for those willing and able to wait).
