2020 Jean Foillard Fleurie

Jean and Agnès Foillard took over the domaine from Jean's father in 1980. Jean is part of Kermit Lynch's designated "Gang of Four": four Beaujolais vignerons following the teachings and practices of late winemaker and chemist Jules Chauvet, considered a forefather of the French natural wine movement. Foillard is known for structured Morgon wines, crafted in a Burgundian style. Vineyards are farmed organically and are hand-harvested, choosing only the healthiest grapes so as to allow vinification without the use of sulfur. 

  • Fleurie: 1 ha of 45- to 50-year-old vines; soil is pink sandstone
