Jean Foillard Morgon 2021

Jean Foillard Morgon is natural young village wine that delivers ripe fruit aromas. A silky mouthfeel, powdery tannins and refreshing acidity on the medium-bodied palate. Fruity and fresh cherry flavour with a good dose of minerals alongside its lightly herbal and spiced nature.

100% Gamay. The fruit for this wine comes from old Gamay vines in Morgon, Beaujolais. The vines grow in the unique volcanic hillside terroir, a mix of schist and granite. A natural wine 

made with minimal intervention in the winery, all the meticulous work is done in the vineyard.

The fruit undergoes a thorough selection at the winery. Whole bunch spontaneous maceration with native yeasts, without destemming, then maturation in vats. Bottling 

without chaptalisation, filtration and no additional sulphur.
