Picture-Perfect Fleurie:
2019 Foillard Fleurie

Posted by Joe Salamone

Foillard's Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie.

Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon. The fact that he can turn out a Fleurie of such glorious typicity really highlights just how sensitive of a winemaker Foillard is.

Foillard's Fleurie is sourced from sites of impressive pedigree: the climats of Grille Midi, La Madone, and Champagne. The Fleurie is sourced from a mere 2 hectares making this a much more elusive bottling than his legendary Morgon Côte du Py.

His Fleurie is exceedingly lithe and super-fine in its texture, a delicacy that this Cru is renowned for. Few wines exemplify Fleurie as well with its silken plum fruits and charming elegance, revealing perfumed aromatics of strawberry and plums, mingling with a clear soil expression and mineral.

The warmer 2019 vintage produced deeper and more layered Beaujolais. You can expect the 2019 Fleurie to be an especially textural version of the wine while maintaining plenty of verve and drinkability

I'll wrap this up. Foillard makes some of the best and most loved Beaujolais. Anytime that we offer Foillard, the response is very strong. The wines are simply among the great expressions of Beaujolais.
