About This Wine

Alex Foillard follows similar methods as his father and other members of the legendary "gang of four" (carbonic maceration, minimal sulphur and only at bottling, etc.). Even at this early point (2018 is his third vintage), he seems masterful at the process.

The wines have a beautiful purity. The Côte de Brouilly is thrillingly clear and powerful, animated by a core of stony minerality and brightness. It's quite structured, but is sheathed in a beautifully pure, suave fruit. Josh Raynolds captures the wine very well when he writes: "Superb, mineral-driven persistence."
