Ratings and Tasting Notes:
The Elles is a break from regular programming and is quite special because of this departure, and may not ever be repeated.
Elles is made by Jean Foillard's wife Agnès and her friend Nadine. They use Jean's grapes and produce a wine of beautiful clarity. Compared to Côte du Py, the Elles is less rich. It is most similar to Jean's Corcelette bottling. It has almost the same luminous and silken quality. Expect gently spiced and floral-tinged cherry fruits backed by a stony minerality.
Elles is absolutely delicious and food-friendly - a really impressive effort from Agnès and Nadine.
