Jean Foillard | Morgon Cuvée 3.14 2016

Beaujolais, France

The 2016 Morgon Cuvée 3.14 is a beautiful wine in the making, unfurling in the glass with scents of rose petals, blood orange, sweet wild berries, smoked meats and some subtly reductive top notes that dissipate in the glass. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with a deeper and more reserved profile than Foillard's dramatic 2016 Côte du Py, underpinned by succulent acids and framed by powdery tannins. Right now, the gap between the two cuvées isn't hugely pronounced, but I expect it to open up as time passes and the more concentrated but equally well-balanced 3.14 begins to unwind.

Grape Growing & Wine Making
Jean Foillard is a fervent supporter, like Marcel Lapierre, of the natural wine growing and making methods of the legendary Jules Chauvet. This includes keeping whole clusters of grapes in vats for 2 to 3 weeks at a low temperature before fermentation, using only natural yeast, no pumping, no fining and no filtration. Furthermore he ages his wine in barrels brought from the Domaine de la Romanée-Conti.
