Pretty amazing texture. Super silky. A little cleaner than the cote du py & less barnyard (Brett)funky aromatics. Dark, rich layers of cherry fruit. A lot of brettanomyces here but still enjoyable. 2014 vintage

Always gulpable. Needed time to open but fresh and delicious if given at least an hour.

Sweet? Gassy, cloudy. Brett to the max but I'm a sucker for it at this level. Very volatile. Just enough carbonique fruit to make it all work for now.

First bottle ever. Yesssss! Back to it on day 2. Better! Earthy red fruits hinting towards dark, complex funk in a good way, dried flowers, rocky mineral. Saving one more glass for tomorrow. Glad I have another bottle to come back to down the road.

A great wine from Foillard. Rich dark fruit, savory herb, menthol. Good acidity. A treat!

2014 old vines #morgonstudy - Interestingly, while the Lapierre was a touch more alcoholic (13% vs. 12.5%), it was lighter and more playful on this night. Foillard's 3.14 was concentrated, dense, sported a dark red fruit spectrum, smoky, and very mineralic. My biggest problem with this wine was its disjointed tannins. Nevertheless, it was a joy to drink and really energetic.

Needs time to open but another fantastic foillard. Darker fruit and more structured than the other foillard bottlings. A hint of brett that largely blows off in the decanter. Great texture

More house wine exploration. Actually like this for the chalky and mineral characteristics as well as the slight funk but not a house wine QPR.
