Domaine Jean Foillard
Jean Foillard took over his father’s domaine in 1980. Most of his vineyards are planted on the Côte du Py, the famed slope outside the town of Villié-Morgon and the pride of Morgon. Jean Foillard is a cult wine hero amongst the many young free-spirited vignerons in France who are now looking back to nature to make fine wine, and calling for a return to the old practices of viticulture and vinification. These are wines with presence and depth packed to the rafters with fistfuls of fruit without excessive or obvious effort

Winemaker Notes

Domaine Jean Foillard

by Jean Foillard
Foillard’s Morgons are deep, structured, and complex, with a velvety lushness that makes them irresistible when young despite their aging potential. Jean Foillard 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 him that have brought pride back to the crus of the Beaujolais
