MORGON 'CôTE DU PY' 2015
JEAN FOILLARD
(150CL MAGNUM)

Côte du Py is Foillard's most famous wine. A world-class Beaujolais hand-crafted by one of the region's greatest producers, it is the equal of many far more expensive Burgundies grown further north.

  • Plenty of raspberry and cherry fruit; layers of complexity; perfect balance and freshness; pure class.
  • From a top site in Beaujolais on the side of an extinct volcano, made by one of the region's best producers.
  • Crafted like a world-class Burgundy - old vines, hand harvesting, six months in old oak and minimal SO2.
  • Lovely on release, but this has the depth and complexity to improve for five to ten years.
  • Delicious on its own, with a plate of charcuterie, a cassoulet, chilli con carne... the list goes on.
