One of the iconic wines of contemporary France, Foillard’s rendition of the great and famous Côte du Py of Morgon is undoubtedly its greatest example. No one delivers Cote du Py with equal clarity, complexity or textural beauty. Wild cherry, mineral, floral-tinged, and silken in texture, the wine leaves a haunting persistence and fragrance.
Following Jean's succulent 2017 vintage, his 2018 is a vintage full of sumptuous fruit and silky texture, emphasizing vibrant, detailed dark and red fruit, attractive floral and spice qualities - they offer delicious succulence as young wines, and as always they are wonderfully balanced.
"The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py is showing very nicely, offering up a classy bouquet of raspberries and plums, mingled with hints of orange rind, violet and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with a fleshy but elegantly understated core and an expansive finish. Impressively integrated—indeed, it was only after spending half an hour with the bottle that I noticed that it's labeled at 14.5% alcohol—with powdery tannins and succulent balancing acids, it's another fine rendition of this iconic cuvée." - 94 Points William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
