Earth/barnyard threatening fruit. Big and broad. Lush. 80 year old vines!

If it's hot out and you want a red wine, this is where to go, Beaujolais Cru wines, preferably from the Cru sites of Morgon, Fleurie, or Moulin-a-Vent. Brouilly is good too with the right producer. Aromas and flavors of red berries crushed onto limestone rocks. The weight is what makes it great when it's hot out as this flows over the palate with ease and freshness from the electric acidity. #foillard

Hmm that's funny. More Chamonard than Foillard to me for this bottle; a touch more VA and barnyard than the typical Foillard resinous white flower aromatics I've come to love. Great with mustard and panko encrusted pork tenderloin with sautéed apples, but then that's not surprising. Still wields a great dark cherry fruity grip. Lots of crushed dried autumn leaves on the nose and palate. Good, but perhaps a slightly muddled bottle.
