Jean Foillard Morgon Cote du Py Beaujolais 2017

Another beautiful Beaujolais from Jean Foillard, from one of the best vineyards of  Morgon Cru Beaujolais, Cote du Py. Very well made in a traditional way, the wine is rustic, spicy, flinty, and yet generously, intensely fruited as well. Great to drink now but has a structure for cellaring for a long time.

A natural wine, Gamay grapes are grown in organic vineyards, no filtration, minimal or no Sulfur dioxide. Outstanding vintage like 2014 and 2015.

"Secondly, 2017 continues the recent run of high-quality vintages, and looks like being even better than 2016 and 2015." Clive Coats, Master of Wine

94 points Robert Parker - Wine Advocate

"Foillard's just-released 2017 Morgon Côte du Py is a great success, unwinding in the glass with aromas of red fruit compote and cherries that are complemented with aeration by beautiful top notes of rose petal, blood orange and violets. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a generous core of ripe but succulent fruit, tangy acids and powdery structuring tannins that assert themselves gently on the long, sapid finish. This is somewhat more sun-kissed in profile than the 2016, and I'm inclined to give the latter vintage a slight edge, but it also needs a year or two in bottle." — by William Kelley, April 2019
