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.

The Pinnacle of Py - Magnum Edition:
2017 Foillard Morgon Cote du Py Cuvee 3.14 Magnums

The 3,14 bottling is only made in special years and is always one of the most exciting releases.

"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.

2016 Foillard Morgon Cuvee 3,14 Magnums

Jean Foillard is one of Beaujolais' greatest winemakers. And 3,14 is his magnum opus.

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.

Foillard Rarity:
2015 Foillard Morgon Athanor

In most great vintages, this wine would be called cuvée 3,14. However, the 2015 vintage was so singular that the wine was given its own name. Athanor is a reference to a furnace that medieval alchemists believed could turn base metals into gold. That gives you a sense of how extraordinary the wine is.

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.

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.

Morgon's Master:
2014 Foillard Morgon Cote du Py Bottles & Magnums

Foillard is one of the undisputed great producers of Beaujolais and 2014 is easily one of the strongest Beaujolais vintages of the past decade.

The Master of Morgon:
2014 Foillard Morgon Eponyme

With the first release of Eponym in 2013, it became even more obvious how dialed dialed into terroir Foillard is.

Foillard Value:
2015 Foillard Morgon Classique

For many of us, Foillard is the master of Morgon. It's that simple.

Gamay in Silk:
2015 Foillard Morgon Corcelette

When Corcelette is on, it's one of the most beguiling bottles of Beaujolais around.

Morgon's Master in Fleurie:
2010 Foillard Fleurie

2010 remains one of our favorite vintages of Foillard's Fleurie. When we saw this parcel, we jumped on it.

Magical Morgon:
2015 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

Each vintage, we amass as much of Foillard's Côte du Py as we can get. It's never enough.

Morgon's Master: 2014 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

For the past six months, we've been amassing as much of Foillard's 2014 Côte du Py as we can get our hands on. Foillard is one of the undisputed great producers of Beaujolais and 2014 Beaujolais is easily one of the strongest vintages of the past decade. We're expecting a huge response to this offer. 

New Foillard: 2013 & 2014 Foillard Morgon Eponyme

There are few producers in Beaujolais who turn out wines with the same level of clarity and purity as Foillard. For many years his Côte du Py has been a standard bearer for Morgon. But it wasn't until he released the first vintage from another lieu-dit, Corcelette, that it became clear how sensitive Foillard's winemaking is.
