This wine has for many years set the benchmark for age-worthy Gamay. Foillard is considered to be one of the founders of the minimal intervention movement, avoiding fining, filtration, and sulphur - the terroir of the famous Côte du Py really shines through in this wine.
About the producer: One of the famous ‘Gang of Four’ – the group of Beaujolais winemakers credited with kickstarting the return to a more natural way of producing wine – Foillard is a true icon. These wines are representative of a style of Beaujolais made for ageing and contemplation, without compromise in terms of quality and finesse.
