2018 Jean Foillard 'Côte du Py' Morgon (LIMITED)Red
Classic, Cult Producer
'A name synonymous with iconic wines of contemporary France, Jean Foillard’s classic and natural approach to winemaking across his iconic Côte du Py vineyard is as pure and captivating as Beaujolais gets'.
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.
– 94/100 William Kelley End of May 2020, The Wine Advocate.
