2018 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py Magnums

We'll keep this email short. Foillard is one of the legends of Beaujolais and magnums of his Côte du Py always sell out quickly.

Métras On Tip-Toe: 2018 Métras Beaujolais Fleurie Printemps

In recent years, Printemps has snuck up on us as one of the most fascinating wines of the lineup. Printemps has Métras' indescribable textural presence, with an added beautiful energy. It's the most dynamic wine of Métras' lineup. 

Subject Magical Morgon: 2018 Foillard Morgon Corcelette VV

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.

2018 Métras Fleurie VV

When we tally up the mind-bending bottles of Beaujolais that we've drunk, Métras looms very large.

Killer Foillard Value: 2017 Foillard Morgon Classique

Foillard is a master of Beaujolais. Today, we're happy to offer the point in his lineup where deliciousness and serious value intersect.

A New Foillard, A New Terroir
2017 Alex Foillard Brouilly

Alex Foillard, son of Beaujolais legend Jean Foillard, made the first wine under his label last year at twenty-five years old. Beaujolais fans immediately took notice.

When Métras' Cup Runneth Over
2018 Chapel Fleurie Charbonnières VV

In 2018, something happened that may never happen again. After a series of short vintages, and some devastatingly reduced yields, 2018 brought a relatively abundant harvest. This allowed legendary Beaujolais winemaker Yvon Métras to sell a small portion of his grapes from Charbonnières to Domaine Chapel.

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

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.

Lapierre Morgon 2018 Magnums

Lapierre is one of the most iconic producers in Beaujolais. I’ll keep this brief.

Dutraive's North Star:
2018 Famille Dutraive Saint Amour Clos du Chapitre

Dutraive's wines are seductive in their clarity, soil-inflected depth and sheer joyful drinkability. Dutraive's wines started to be imported in 2009. The wines were so compelling that they became an overnight sensation. At this point, Dutraive is firmly situated as one of the region's most sought after and beloved producers.

Rare Sighting
2018 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Each summer, we offer Lapierre's Sans Soufre and it sells out in a flash. 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. 

Beaujolais and The Volcano - A Distance Runner:
2017 Château Thivin Côte du Brouilly Cuvée Zaccharie

Château Thivin's Cuvée Zaccharie is one of Beaujolais' unsung greats. Along with Bouland's Delys and Roilette's Tardive, Zaccherie is among the most structured expressions of Beaujolais. Zaccharie is a Beaujolais of truly uncommon earthy depth and layered complexity.

The Master of Morgon - Magnum Edition:
2017 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py Magnums

Côte du Py is one of Beaujolais' great vineyards. Foillard is undoubtedly the master of the site. Each year, we eagerly await the release of Foillard's Côte du Py.

Morgon's Master: 2017 Foillard Morgon Corcelette & Eponym

Jean Foillard is one of the greats of Beaujolais. He also has an incredible knack for capturing terroir. Today's offer drives that point home.

Foillard's 2017 Morgon Côte du Py

Côte du Py is one of Beaujolais' great vineyards. Foillard is undoubtedly the master of the site. Each year, we eagerly await the release of Foillard's Côte du Py.

Rare Métras Magnums:
2017 Métras Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie VV Magnums

Every year, we hunt down as much Métras as we can possibly find. When we tally everything up, there's always a pitiful amount of magnums. We're happy to offer our small parcel of 2017 Métras Magnums, Fleurie VV and Moulin-à-Vent.

Long-Haul Beaujolais, Magnum Edition:
2017 Roilette Fleurie Cuvée Tardive

Roilette's Cuvée Tardive is one of Beaujolais' longest lived and most profound wines. For us, magnums are essential.

Knockout Fleurie: 2017 Julien Sunier Fleurie

Julien Sunier has firmly established himself as one of Beaujolais' top young winemakers. Vintage after vintage, Sunier's Fleurie is the star of the line-up.

Don't Miss Lapierre: 2017 Lapierre Morgon

For us, there may be no producer in Beaujolais who succeeds in ripe vintages like Lapierre.

As much as we love Lapierre, there are certain vintages that we get especially excited about and advise that you go deep on. Along with 2009, 2014 and 2015, 2017 is one of these vintages.

The Master of Morgon Revisited: 2016 Foillard Morgon Corcelette

When Corcelette is on, it's one of the most beguiling bottles of Beaujolais around. Foillard's Corcelette bottling has quickly become one of the Beaujolais that we reach for the most often.

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 the incredible value and are as loved as Tardive. It is a wine that we buy in case quantities every vintage.

The Incredible Lightness of Beaujolais:
2016 Metras Beaujolais

We love Métras in vintages like 2016. In these years, they show vividness, delineation and straight-up joyful drinking. For us, there's no better place to witness this than the 2016 Beaujolais.

2017 Lapierre Morgon Magnums

Lapierre is one of the standard-bearers of Beaujolais. We'll keep this brief.

Rarely Seen Lapierre
2017 Lapierre Morgon Sans Soufre

Our allocation of Lapierre's Sans Soufre bottling is one of the most anticipated events. Lapierre's Morgon is one of the most wildly delicious wines in existence. The Sans Soufre bottling takes it to another level. In the U.S. it's rarely encountered and tends to disappear from the market quickly.
