Jean Foillard hardly needs an introduction. He is one of the legends of Beaujolais.
Few producers can coax as much clarity, complexity, and textural beauty from a site as Foillard. It’s incredible that Foillard’s wines still represent some of the best values around.
Today, we’re happy to offer Foillard’s 2018 Morgon Corcelette VV for $39.95 per bottle and $36.95 in 4-packs.
Over the years, Corcelette has become one of our favorite bottles of Beaujolais. The wine has an elegance and lift that makes it really compelling and all too easy to drink.
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.
We especially like Corcelette in warmer vintages. The wine gets an irresistible satiny texture and depth along with vigor and snap (it's just cloaked in satin). The 2018 Corcelette is beguiling. The aromatics cover a fascinatingly wide spectrum and are delivered with incredible clarity. In short, this a superb vintage of Corcelette.
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.
