Domaine Jean Foillard "Les Charmes Eponym", Morgon, Beaujolais, France
Another winner in Jean Foillard’s stellar lineup of Morgons comes from one of the highest parcels in the appellation, grown on granitic soil. This bottle presents with lots of bright acidity and a lean, more mineral profile with a satin texture. Plenty of brambly dark cherries and a little spice on the nose. The palate plays out with fleshy, dark-fruit flavors. A rich, concentrated and smooth tannic finish. Just. Gorgeous.
