Jean Foillard Morgon 'Corcelette' 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 ‘Corcelette’ comes from an 80-year old parcel of vines, aged in a combination of barrel and foudre. Silky and concentrated, the wine oozes with notes of red fruit, earth, and floral undertones. A knockout!

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.

The most revered, fetishized wine region on earth and the spiritual home of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Reaching from Chablis down to Beaujolais, it sits on a limestone outcropping in central France.
