“Foillard’s 2020 Morgon Côte du Py bursts with aromas of peonies, orange rind, exotic spices and dark berries. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, it’s deep and concentrated, with a rich core of fruit, tangy acids, powdery tannins and a long, sapid finish. Intensely flavored and incisive, at this early stage the 2020 looks to be one of the finest vintages of this cuvée in recent years.” Roland Peens

Domaine Jean Foillard is a leader in natural wines and uses only small amounts of S0₂. ‘These are wines with presence and weight matiere packed to the rafters with fistfuls of fruit without excessive or obvious effort ‘ says Neal Martin. This includes keeping whole clusters of grapes in vats for 2 to 3 weeks at a low temperature before fermentation using only natural yeast no pumping no fining and no filtration. Furthermore Jean Foillard ages his wine in barrels brought from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti; the results are sublime. He is a cult wine hero amongst the many young free-spirited vignerons in France who are now looking back to nature to make fine wine.
