2018 Domaine Jean Foillard Fleurie Beaujolais
This estate comprises nearly fourteen hectares. Foillard’s wines are deep, structured, and complex, with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young despite their aging potential. Jean raises his wines in older barrels sourced from top estates in Burgundy, a logical decision for someone crafting Gamay in a Burgundian style. It is the passion and dedication of vignerons like this that have brought pride back to the crus of the Beaujolais.
From 50 year old vines in the lieu-dits of Grille-Midi and Champagne in Fleurie. Expect plenty of muscle, power and drive in this vintage, with explosive aromatics and exceptional length.
James Suckling - "A generous red with lots of ripe-berry, chocolate, walnut and dry-earth character. Some white truffle, too. It’s full-bodied with a round, chewy texture and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold."
