Wonderful showing. White pepper, granite, lavender, dark berries and earth. Loads of aroma presented gracefully. Some olive as well. Just lovely. Palate is ripe, generous and juicy but also super fresh, energetic and dynamic. Terrific acids in this. All the fruit is red and roaring. Lovely velvety tannins and a long finish suggests this can and will age for a while. Superb clarity here. Superb granite on the finish. Really long finish. — 9 days ago
Dark garnet purple. Inviting nose and medium palate of black cranberry and red apple. Medium tannins and juicy medium plus acidity from entry to moderate finish. Cru Beaujolais is either BeauJo Nouveau’s more serious or Burgundy’s more rustic cousin and this one offers an affordable entrée into the genre for those who enjoy either. A great everyday red that will accompany a wide range of red wine fare. Drink now. — 4 days ago
The nose is made of lemon, crushed rocks, chalk and there is little touch of juicy pear that pops up after a while and when the wine is warming up slightly. We could add a tiny touch of vanilla from the barrel but it's very discreet. Lovely. This is everything I'm expecting from a 1er cru chablis. The palate is made of a massive acid backbone, almost overwhelming! There is matter to balance it but it's trodding on a very thin edge. Notes of chalk and lemon, and lemon peel are showing all around the way making for a super dynamic, vivid mouthfeel. The finish lasts for ever with this lemony and chalky notes but that vanilla touch that appeared in the rear on the nose makes a discreet comeback in the end and on the sides and that almost reminds me of white burgundies from way down south around meursault and puligny. Awesome, intellectual wine that delivers! — 5 days ago
Enjoyed two bottles during Thanksgiving week 2021. The first bottle was good but the second bottle (on Thanksgiving night) was really pleasant. For 14 year old 1er Cru it was a great example of what good winemaking and good storage can do. Worked just right with turkey, stuffing and trimmings. Did not have the smokiness of any of my previous efforts with this wine (see earlier ratings). — 9 hours ago
Always as much pleasure, with Foillard wines. 2016 is perfectly to my taste. Between the juicy crunch of youth, and the more aerial floral character that the Morgons develop as they age. A juice that pinote with truffled and undergrowth notes. Delight of finesse.
Toujours autant de plaisir, avec les vins de Foillard. 2016 est parfaitement à mon goût. Entre le croquant juteux de jeunesse, et le caractère plus aérien floral que les Morgon développent en vieillissant. Un jus qui pinote avec des notes truffées et sous bois. Régal de finesse. — 18 days ago
