Jean Foillard has forged not only his own reputation but helped resurrect that of an entire appellation, through crafting wines of elegance, purity and health by returning to a more holistic way of farming.

Gentle farming, lower yields, native yeasts, and long low temperature carbonic macerations are his hallmarks that help to produce Cru Beaujolais of immense purity and finesse.

A cuvée from the lieu-dit of Les Charmes that debuted in 2013, the 2016 Morgon Eponym opens in the glass with notes of rose hip, dark plums, espresso roast and grilled meats, a light touch of reduction dissipating with aeration.

On the palate, it’ medium to full-bodied, deep and satiny, with more savory structure and acidic tang than the softer, rounder Corcelette.
