Jean Foillard, Morgon 'Eponym' Beaujolais 2021

Availability: In stock


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).
