Description

Jean Foillard Morgon Côte du Py 2021

Jean Foillard Morgon Côte du Py has a weightless elegance that also carries incredible depth and concentration. Silk mouthfeel, refreshing acidity and feathery tannins on the light-bodied palate. Mesmerising cherry and raspberry flavours with a brilliant mineral ribbon fluttering through to the fore. 

100% Gamay.

Côte du Py is a volcanic hillside planted with ancient Gamay vines in Morgon, Beaujolais. This wine is made with minimal intervention in the winery, all the meticulous work is done in the vineyard.

Hand harvesting and total destemming of the fruit. Three day maceration with pigeage every 3 hours, alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for 

4 months in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees, plus 20 months in deroble barrels.
