100% Gamay.  The third and latest addition to Jean Foillard’s stellar lineup of Morgons comes from the Charmes lieu-dit, one of the highest parcels in the appellation. In contrast to the grandiose, deeply structured Côte du Py and silky-smooth Corcelette, this cuvée features a bit more crunch with lots of bright acidity and a leaner, more mineral profile. It nonetheless shares the satin texture of all Foillard Morgons, and should age similarly well for those willing and able to wait.

-Anthony Lynch

Legendary Beaujolais-based pioneer of the natural wine movement, Jean Foillard’s fourteen hectares are farmed with a ‘non-interventionist’ mentality, allowing the wines to develop as naturally as possible. ‘Les Charmes-Eponym’ is complex and aromatic, with lifted notes of flowers, minerals, and fresh red fruit. Silky and delicate, giving way to a sappy, long finish.
