2021 Jean Foillard Morgon 'Cote du Py'
The Cote du Py is considered a Grand Cru equivalent by many, and it holds a unique position in close proximity to the village of Morgon in Beaujolais. Situated atop an extinct volcano, this elevated plot boasts distinctive black, hardened, soils that possess the remarkable ability to yield well-structured, age-worthy red wines. Surpassing expectations typically associated with Beaujolais, these wines exhibit a captivating complexity and heightened expressiveness. The soil composition consists of schist and granite, complemented by a blend of vines ranging from venerable 90-year-old specimens to younger counterparts.
