This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard’s Morgons are deep, structured, and complex, with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young despite their aging potential. Jean raises his wines in older barrels sourced from top estates in Burgundy, a logical decision for someone crafting Gamay in a Burgundian style. It is the passion and dedication of vignerons like this that have brought pride back to the crus of the Beaujolais.
Jean Foillard is one of the most iconic names in modern day Beaujolais.
His unfettered expressions of the great vineyards of the region have amassed a massive cult-following, both at home and abroad. His wines are considered benchmarks of Beaujolais.
Using traditional practices, Foillard weaves a mesmerising tapestry of texture, clarity and energy through each of his creations.
The Fleurie is one of Foillard's most sought-after cuveés in his homeland, so much so that it is rarely seen in Australia.
It is a wonderful, expressive example of the vineyard: all floral top notes, finely etched tannin and the signature "Foillard minerality" that shows as a thumbprint on all his wines.
