Morgon Côte du Py Vieilles Vignes 2020, Domaine Jean Foillard
Delightful fragrances of wild strawberries and candied cherries which lead onto a silky palate with subtly earthy and mineral undertones.
Jean and Agnès Foillard took over his father’s domaine in 1980, and soon thereafter began to make Kermit Lynch customers very happy. Most of their vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon.
Vineyards are farmed organically. Highly selective hand harvesting. Barrels are minimum 2 years old. Unfiltered and with no added SO2 during vinification. Traditional, whole cluster fermentation lasts from 3-4 weeks. Aged for 6-9 months in used oak barrels.
