Domaine Jean Foillard Beaujolais-Villages
WINE TYPE: Red
One of the famed 'Gang of Four' from Kermit Lynch, most of the Foillard vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. The Beaujolais Villages is actually produced from parcels located in Villié-Morgon, Lancié, Saint-Amour, and St-Etienne-La-Varenne. Traditional, whole cluster fermentation is used and lasts from 15 days in concrete tank. The wine is then aged 7 months in concrete tank.
This wine absolutely overdelivers for the price. Violets, cherry, black raspberry, all-spice, mineral.
