PRESS AND REVIEWS

94 points James Suckling
Fruity and delicious. Real wine here. Earthy and complex. Drink and enjoy. (3/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Foillard's just-released 2017 Morgon Côte du Py is a great success, unwinding in the glass with aromas of red fruit compote and cherries that are complemented with aeration by beautiful top notes of rose petal, blood orange and violets. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with a generous core of ripe but succulent fruit, tangy acids and powdery structuring tannins that assert themselves gently on the long, sapid finish. This is somewhat more sun-kissed in profile than the 2016, and I'm inclined to give the latter vintage a slight edge, but it also needs a year or two in bottle. (WK) (4/2019)

94 points Vinous
The color was iridescent, the bouquet pure Gamay in full flight…The palate harnessed the vivacity and unpretentiousness of Gamay with fine tannins, pure, tart black and red fruit and veins of blueberry. There was a gentle but insistent grip on a finish of supreme length. An outstanding Beaujolais wine, but frankly, I expected nothing less from this producer. (NM) (10/2019)
