Gamay In Silk:
2020 Foillard Morgon Corcelette VV

Posted by Joe Salamone

When Foillard's Corcelette debuted well over a decade ago, it served as a perfect contrast to his legendary Côte du Py.

If Côte du Py is rich and wild-cherry-accented, Corcelette has an intricate delicacy.  Corcelette shows the more feminine, delicate side of Morgon. It originates from 80-year-old vines planted in sandy soil. This is Gamay cast in silk with a shimmering presentation of bright red fruits, flowers, and ultra-clear stony minerality.

All Foillards have an amazing textural intrigue, but here you get an underlying minerality that's profoundly tactile. We love the wine's energetic mineral streak and nuanced floral notes.

The 2020 is beautifully suave and has a nicely stern acid and mineral backbone. It has such a seductive mouthfeel along with a high-toned and incisive character. It's complex in its layers of herbs, earth, stony minerals, and a wide spectrum of bright red fruits.

Like just about everyone else, we love Foillard. Every vintage we buy as much of it as we can get our hands on. We encourage you to take advantage of the special 4-pack pricing. You'll want this around in quantity.
