Foillard, Morgon Côte du Py 2018 Bottle size: 750mlFrance, Beaujolais
‘One of the superstars of Morgon, Jean Foillard took over at the estate in 1980. Along with Marcel Lapierre and Jean-Paul Thevenet, the philosophy here is minimal intervention, late harvesting, ultra-rigorous grape selection and minimal sulphur usage. This wonderful Côte du Py does not disappoint with sweet dark fruit, all perfectly balanced by acidity, mineral notes on the palate, ultra-refined oak and a spicy, exotic finish. A very fine wine, able to compete with top Premier Cru Côte d'Or wines. 2021 - 2028.’ – Decanter, 95/100
‘Vivid ruby. A highly complex bouquet evokes ripe red/blue fruits, candied flowers and exotic spices, and a smoky mineral nuance builds as the wine opens up. Stains the palate with appealingly sweet black raspberry and cherry flavors that become livelier and spicier on the back half. Conveys an impressive blend of power and finesse and lingers with superb persistence on the finish, which features sneaky tannins and lingering florality. Drink 2022 – 2030.’ – Josh Raynolds, Vinous, 94/100
'The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py is showing very nicely, offering up a classy bouquet of raspberries and plums, mingled with hints of orange rind, violet and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with a fleshy but elegantly understated core and an expansive finish. Impressively integrated—indeed, it was only after spending half an hour with the bottle that I noticed that it's labeled at 14.5% alcohol—with powdery tannins and succulent balancing acids, it's another fine rendition of this iconic cuvée. Drink 2020 - 2038.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 94/100
