Reviews 91 points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Morgon Corcelette was hit by April hail, but the wine has turned out very well indeed, offering up aromas of plums, cassis, cherries and subtle grilled meat. On the palate, it’s medium to full-bodied, layered and elegant, with velvety tannins, good acids and a supple profile, with just a touch of chewy tannin to resolve on the back end. (WK)" 94 points Vinous "Vivid ruby. Powerful, mineral-accented red fruit liqueur aromas are complemented by hints of candied lavender, five-spice powder and incense. Silky, pliant and appealingly sweet, offering palate-caressing raspberry and cherry compote flavors given lift and focus by a core of smoky minerality. In a pure, energetic style, showing excellent finishing thrust, harmonious tannins and lingering stoniness. (JR)"

About Jean Foillard

As a winemaker, Jean Foillard is known for producing exceptional Gamay wines that break the mold of traditional Beaujolais. He has earned a reputation as the Morgon Master and Fleurie's finest, but we refer to him as Beaujolais' Benchmark.

Located at the peak of Cote du Py, the most famed slope in Morgon, Jean Foillard's family vineyards are considered some of the best terroirs in Beaujolais. He has also expanded his holdings into Fleurie's top lieux dits: Grille-Midi and La Madone. The combination of prime terroir and Jean's winemaking techniques results in truly exceptional wines.

At Jean Foillard, the winemaking process is focused on showcasing the unique character of the terroir and the grapes. The grapes are hand-harvested at the peak of ripeness, and are carefully sorted to ensure only the best grapes are used. The grapes are then fermented using native yeasts, and are fermented with whole clusters, which adds complexity and depth to the wines. Once the fermentation is completed, the wines are aged in neutral oak barrels for an extended period, allowing the wines to develop and gain complexity. Jean Foillard believes in minimal intervention, and the wines are bottled unfiltered and without any chaptalization or sulfur addition, thus preserving the natural character of the grapes and the terroir.
