"The 2015 Morgon Côte du Py has much more complexity and harmony on the nose with redcurrant, cranberry and blackcurrant leaf aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, ripe and harmonious with juicy raspberry and cranberry notes lining the finish. This is a very impressive Beaujolais as you would expect, although I would give it a year, perhaps two, in bottle because the true quality of Côte du Py only really becomes evident in the glass with a modicum of bottle age. Drink: 2018-2030. 92 points

Jean Foillard was away from the domaine when I visited. Readers should refer to my introduction with respect to his son, Alexandre. Needless to say, these are extremely well crafted, low-intervention wines using minimal SO2, used barrels and no fining or filtration. All that is irrelevant if the wine does not taste good, and Foillard's wines have tasted brilliantly for many years, as attested by a stunning 2004 Morgon Côte du Py that would surpass many a hi-falutin Côte de Nuits!"
