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.
92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July 2013
Brilliant ruby. Red fruit liqueur, cherry pit, incense and a smoky nuance on the assertively perfumed nose. Fleshy and broad but distinctly energetic, offering sappy raspberry and cherry flavors braced by zesty minerality. The finish features a sexy floral pastille quality and clings with outstanding mineral-driven persistence. Here's another '11 that nicely blends power and vivacity.
