Killer Foillard Value: 2017 Foillard Morgon Classique

Posted by Joe Salamone

Foillard is a master of Beaujolais.

Today, we're happy to offer the point in his lineup where deliciousness and serious value intersect.

At as low as $25.95, this is a bottle that you'll find yourself reaching for often.

The ripeness of the 2017 vintage elevated this bottling in a way that we haven't witnessed before. There are layers of complexity that you seldom encounter at this price point.

Jean Foillard is one of the legends of Beaujolais. His wines have a gorgeous silken texture and an incredible purity. There are few wines anywhere that can rival Foillard's when it comes to outright appeal.

The 2017 Morgon Classique has these qualities in spades. The bottle is dangerously gulpable. It has a lovely balance between richness and energy.

Foillard’s reputation looms so large that most of this email probably goes without saying. It’s amazing that wines from a producer of his stature can still be had for right around $25. In 2017, the wine is so good that the value is even more apparent.
