Place: Morgon - Beaujolais, FRA
Jean Foillard is one of the most iconic names in modern day Beaujolais. Using traditional practices, Foillard weaves a mesmerising tapestry of texture, clarity and energy through each of his creations.
Crushed plum, damson and minerals with a velvety but very fresh mouthfeel — vibrant and fresh acidity is a sign of this wine as the vines in Charmes are at altitude — this finishes fresh and tight, clear and bright. Eponym Charmes is a slightly darker, more brooding example of the famous Morgon Cru.
