From release through decades of aging, there's no Cru Beaujolais producer that's equaled the thrills of Jean Foillard. Young producers like Yann Bertrand call him a mentor, while his contemporaries call him the Morgon Master. Regardless of where your preferences lie within the unparralled values found in Cru Beaujolais, one thing is clear: Jean Foillard is the benchmark.
The wines have a reputation for combining lushness and fresh fruit aromas with depth, complexity and structure, which gives them not only great appeal when young but also considerable aging potential. The wines avoid the bubblegum aromas that can be associated with the Gamay grape and Beaujolais winemaking.
Domain Jean Foillard is now an emblematic figure of the natural wine movement. This winemaker took no time in exalting the terroirs of Morgon and the Côte-du-Py, with wines that are as silky and suave as they are concentrated and made for cellaring. An unmissable signature, one of the most sought-after in the region. The wines from this domain are a must try, here’s a look at the selection available to hunt!
