Jean Foillard Morgon 'Cote du Py' 2017

Jean Foillard is a legendary pioneer of the natural wine movement, farming fourteen hectares with a ‘non-interventionist’ mentality in the heart of Morgon. Fruit for ‘Cote du Py’ comes from 90-year old vines rooted in granitic and schist soils, creating a dark-fruited, structured wine with serious backbone and a high-toned finish. A delicious food wine!

Gamay

The purplish grapey red of Beaujolais lately taken more seriously as a wine that punches above its weight. Perfectly fruity and yet in certain villages imbued with a stony mineral core.
