This product contains 3 bottles of wines from Jean Foillard:
1 x Jean Foillard Athanor 2015
2 x Jean Foillard Cote du Py 2018
“Athanor” is one of his top cuvees, said to be the old “3.14,” using the same 80-year-old vines from his sandstone soil vineyards. The cuvee takes its name from a furnace, said to turn base metals into gold by medieval alchemists—much like the work organic winemakers do. The grapes for "Athanor" are hand-harvested and sorted, and age for a minimum of two years in barrel. Teeming with notes of silky dark berry fruit and violets, gentle spice notes, and a penetrating minerality, this is a special cuvee that we may never see again.
94, William Kelley:
'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'.
