Fans of Gamay, and Beaujolais writ large, are in for a real treat with this bottle. It's sultry and sumptuous in all the right ways, showing succulent red berries and blood orange accented by through line of minerality. It is a drop dead gorgeous wine that will pair impeccably with your holiday table!
Light, vivid ruby. Vibrant red fruit, floral and spice qualities on the mineral-inflected nose take on suggestions of incense and licorice as the wine stretches out. Sappy, incisive and pure, offering palate-staining raspberry, bitter cherry, floral pastille and rhubarb flavors that show a compelling blend of depth and vivacity. Closes very long and subtly chewy, with reverberating florality and polished tannins that come in late. That Foillard magic is clearly a hereditary thing.
