Picture-Perfect Fleurie

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

Beaujolais Distance Runner - Don't Miss Vintage:
2021 Roilette Fleurie Griffe du Marquis

If you're looking for sternly mineral and long-aging Beaujolais, Roilette is the place to look.

2022 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly:
Les Griottes de Brulhié, Godefroy, & La Chapelle

At their best, Thivin turns out Beaujolais of truly uncommon earthy depth and ageability.

Back Up The Truck - Cru Beaujolais Edition
2020 Dubost Moulin-à-vent En Brenay

2022 Lapierre Morgon Magnums

Lapierre is one of the most beloved producers in Beaujolais and this modest parcel of magnums will disappear quickly.

"This historic estate continues to rank among the reference points for classical, age-worthy cru Beaujolais" - 2021 Château Thivin Côte de Brouilly:
Les Griottes de Brulhié, Godefroy, & Cuvée Zaccharie

"A staple of France's best restaurants—and this writer's table—any readers who are not acquainted with these wines are warmly advised to seek them out." -William Kelley

The Other Foillard - Enter Agnès and Nadine
2018 Foillard Morgon Elles

Like so many others, we find Foillard's wines totally irresistible. The Morgon Elles is yet another entry of Foillard's that we love to drink, but there's a twist.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow
2020 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

The unsulphured version of Lapierre's Morgon consistently shows a textural dimension, a clarity of expression, and an intangible depth that sets it apart.

2020 Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Camille Bottles and Magnums

Rare Sighting Revisited:
2018 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

It's easy to understand. The sans soufre version is a rare sighting. More importantly, it takes the deliciousness of the sulphured version of Lapierre's Morgon to another level.

1ha - Lapierre Rarity:
2019 Lapierre Cuvée Camille

The way that Camille combines deliciousness with a depth of complexity makes it incredibly compelling.

No one does purity and drinkability quite like Lapierre. Camille elevates these qualities to a very serious level. 

Turn Back The Clock Pricing - Long-Haul Beaujolais:
2017 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

Roilette's Cuvée Tardive is one of Beaujolais' longest lived and most profound wines. There are few bottles of Beaujolais that have the track record for aging, can deliver incredible value, and are as loved as Tardive.

One Hundred-Year-Old Vines, Lapierre On Tiptoe:
2019 Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Marcel Lapierre

The first vintage of cuvée Marcel Lapierre was around a decade ago, and it wowed Beaujolais fans from the start.

Lapierre's Morgon is one of Beaujolais' most wines. The cuvée Marcel takes their work to a much different level of depth and seriousness. 

2019 Lapierre Morgon Magnums

For many wine lovers, having a healthy supply of Lapierre is essential. Having magnums around is even better.

The Incredible Lightness of Beaujolais:
2018 Métras Beaujolais 1ere Mise

We love the basic Beaujolais, not for its grandeur and complexity, but for its lightness, lift, and perfume.

The combination of levity, deliciousness, and fascination is something that very few wines achieve.

Lapierre Rarity:
2019 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Each year, Lapierre's San Soufre is our most popular Beaujolais offer. It sells out in hours.

Lapierre is one of the most beloved winemakers, and it's rare to see the Sans Soufre bottling. 

The Young Foillard Nails It:
2018 Alex Foillard Brouilly

Alex Foillard, son of Beaujolais legend Jean Foillard, made the first wine under his label at twenty-five years old.

Beaujolais fans immediately took notice.

"Superb, mineral-driven persistence"
2018 Alex Foillard Côte de Brouilly

Beaujolais fans took immediate notice of Alex Foillard's wines. 

He was 24 years old when he started his project. Now in his third vintage, it's clear that he has an extraordinary ability to coax aromatic complexity and silky texture from the Gamay grape.

2018 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py Magnums

Foillard is one of the legends of Beaujolais, and magnums of his Côte du Py always disappear quickly.

 

Not The Rhone, Not Beaujolais. Somewhere In Between:
2018 Deplaude de Tartaras Hop La & La Chanse

Deplaude de Tartaras is technically from Coteaux-Du-Gier. More accurately, this is the middle of nowhere between the northern Rhône and southern Beaujolais.

The wines are truly noteworthy for their purity and drinkability.

The Master of Morgon: 2018 Foillard Morgon Eponym

Jean Foillard is a master of Morgon.
His mastery of the terroir is highlighted by his trinity of Morgons - Côte du Py, Corcelette & Eponym.

On Lapierre and Hundred-Year-Old Vines Magnum Edition:
2018 Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Marcel Lapierre Magnums

Lapierre's Morgon is one of the wine world's most beloved bottles. The cuvée Marcel Lapierre ups the ante considerably. The first vintage was around a decade ago, and it wowed Beaujolais fans from the start.

Long-Haul Beaujolais - Top Vintage:
2018 Clos de la Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

There are few bottles of Beaujolais that have as strong a track record for aging, deliver as much value, and are as loved as Tardive. Still, there's something special about the 2018 Tardive.

Morgon's Master In Fleurie: 2018 Foillard Fleurie

Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon. Still, his much less available Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie.
