"The 2016 Morgon Côte du Py is more convincing on the nose than the Morgon Corcelette at the moment, with vivacious dark cherry, raspberry and orange blossom aromas soaring from the glass. The palate is fresh on the entry with crisp acidity, quite linear and very focused with a saline touch on the finish. There is great potential here, and it constitutes one of Jean Foillard's most promising offerings in 2016. Drink: 2020-2032. 91-93 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!"
