Unit price/ per
The third and latest addition to Jean Foillard’s stellar lineup of Morgons comes from the "Les Charmes" lieu-dit, one of the highest parcels in the appellation. In contrast to the grandiose, deeply structured Côte du Py and silky-smooth Corcelette, this cuvée features a bit more crunch with lots of bright acidity and a leaner, more mineral profile. It nonetheless shares the satin texture of all Foillard Morgons, and should age similarly well for those willing and able to wait.
Foillard is a Morgon master, crafting very Burgundian-esque Gamay
