Carbonic explosion of fruity rushes and juciy balance.

Silky on nose, red summer berries, good easy/aperitif structure with smooth tanins

Några snäpp under de dyrare Cru-varianterna, men för 16€ är det bra.

Nose of cherry, candy, earth, iron. A pretty beautifully complex nose for a 13€ bottle. The palate is a very good explanation for perfect beaujo balance : an acid backbone taking this wine for a ride, a huge and lovely fruit (cherry) playing around, a very nice grip all along and a fresh finish with cherry. Simple yet complex. Fruity yet textured. A wine defying all common descriptions

chilled and pair with sichuan spicy lotus
a good gamay
fruity but not bubble gum, pleasant and easy

Wonderful aromas of dark cherry, citrus and hints of banana from the whole berry fermentation. Medium to full body, light tannins yet shows grip and minerality from the combination of bright acidity and slate soils. A beautiful encore from the excellent 2015. Made from organically grown grapes. Drink now.

Came after bodybuilders like wines (pibarnon, delaporte) so had issues rising against the challenge. Classic foillard Morgon nose with cherry, metal and earth. The palate was very much on the acid side, lacking a bit of texture and density which I know was due to all previous wines. Small finish on cherry.

Nose of tart cherry, blood, metal, game, dry herbs. The palate is perfectly balanced between sugar fruit and alcohol and acidity. Cherry again, discreet tannins, long sweet finish with a ripe cherry taste that lasts. Once again foillard delivers.
