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.

Bright purple. Black raspberry, cherry, star anise and potpourri on the nose, with a touch of white pepper adding lift and spiciness. Densely packed with red and dark berry fruit but remains light on its feet, with subtle smoke and herb notes adding complexity. Packs a serious punch but comes off lithe, with excellent finishing clarity, grip and persistent spiciness.
