The Master of Morgon:
2022 Foillard Morgon Côte du Py

Posted by Joe Salamone

Côte du Py is one of the iconic and great vineyards of Beaujolais. The site finds its ultimate expression in Foillard's hands.

It's easy to keep this email brief. For decades, Foillard has been one of Beaujolais' top producers. 

Every year, we buy every bottle of Foillard's Côte du Py that we can get our hands on. And every year, we sell out quickly. 

He simply has the touch with the Gamay grape. Few other producers manage to capture purity and texture the way that Foillard does. His Côte du Py gets to the essential wild cherry, mineral, and floral-tinged quality of the vineyard in an unparalleled way. 

The 2022 vintage allowed Foillard to produce a layered and powerful Côte du Py with a vibrant core. We love the underlying structure that pulls everything together with its stony minerality. The wine is powerful and downright gulpable at the same time. 

I'll wrap this up. We're always happy to offer Foillard's Côte du Py. We recently opened a gorgeous 2007 Côte du Py that reminded us that you should always go deep on the wine.
