Jean Foillard makes some our favourite wines anywhere. When news arrived that his son, Alex, had started making wine in very different terroirs in Beaujolais, we were really curious, and now having tried the wine we are very impressed! This wine is made from 50yo vines on granite soils in Brouilly (South of Morgon). The wine is vinified back home in Morgon.
A very fresh attack with crunchy, energetic blueberries and redcurrants, delivering a plush, supple pastry-like palate. Some essences of cherry pie and raspberries here. Very fresh acidity and stony texture. 50% oak and 50% concrete elevage.
