About Jean Foillard
In 1980, Jean Foillard took over his father’s estate winery in Villié-Morgon, expanding and overhauling operations. Today, Foillard possesses 14 hectares of some of the finest sites in Morgon: the sandy Corcelette parcel and a large chunk of the renowned, granitic Cote de Py.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November 2009
($34) Light, bright violet. Mineral-driven red berries and Asian spices on the nose, with nuances of pungent herbs and dried rose. Spicy redcurrant and wild strawberry flavors are complemented by a pungent floral pastille quality and gain power with air. The minerality returns on the finish, which is tangy, focused and impressively persistent. (Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant, Berkeley, CA)
