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.

Gamay From On High:
2019 Arnot-Roberts Gamay El Dorado

For many years, Arnot-Roberts has been producing some of the most exciting wines in the New World. Arnot-Roberts' wines are some of the top examples of the "new California".

1HA - Lapierre Côte du Py:
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.

Value In Red Burgundy:
2017 Jouan Coteaux Bourguignons

In any vintage, Jouan's Coteaux Bourguignons is a wine that the staff drinks by the caseful. It's hard to argue with its liveliness and irresistible texture...

And of course, it's value.

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.

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.

The Master of Morgon: 2018 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

We'll keep this email short. Foillard is one of the legends of Beaujolais. Côte du Py is one of the iconic and great vineyards of Beaujolais. The site finds its ultimate expression in Foillard's hands.

1ha - Rare Lapierre:
2018 Lapierre Morgon Cuvée Camille

Ever since Camille's first vintage in 2013, it's a wine that we've bought every bottle available to us. There's something about how Camille combines deliciousness with a depth of complexity that made us immediate fans. It's a difficult wine to be a fan of -  it is sourced from a 1ha plot.

2018 Métras Fleurie VV Magnums

When we tally up the mind-bending bottles of Beaujolais that we've drunk, Métras looms very large. The examples are too numerous to list, but most recently, there was an expectation-defying bottle of 1996 Fleurie. Catching a bottle of Métras when it's on is simply a profound experience. Of course, the magnum format only makes it better.
