2018 Domaine Jean Foillard Morgon "Côte du Py" (1.5L)

SKU #1531894 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is opulent and vivid with loads of fresh blackberries and black cherries and hints of cedar and walnuts. Plums, too. So perfumed and flavorful, yet it remains fresh and creamy-textured with a long, persistent finish. A beauty. One of the best wines I have ever had from here. Inner quote mark (9/2020)

Outer quote mark One of the superstars of Morgon, Jean Foillard took over at the estate in 1980. Along with Marcel Lapierre and Jean-Paul Thevenet, the philosophy here is minimal intervention, late harvesting, ultra-rigorous grape selection and minimal sulphur usage. This wonderful Côte du Py does not disappoint with sweet dark fruit, all perfectly balanced by acidity, mineral notes on the palate, ultra-refined oak and a spicy, exotic finish. A very fine wine, able to compete with top Premier Cru Côte d'Or wines. (AH) Inner quote mark (2/2021)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2018 Morgon Côte du Py is showing very nicely, offering up a classy bouquet of raspberries and plums, mingled with hints of orange rind, violet and cardamom. Medium to full-bodied, deep and complete, with a fleshy but elegantly understated core and an expansive finish. Impressively integrated—indeed, it was only after spending half an hour with the bottle that I noticed that it's labeled at 14.5% alcohol—with powdery tannins and succulent balancing acids, it's another fine rendition of this iconic cuvée. As I wrote last year, it's an open secret that this is one of the region's finest as well as most consistent addresses, and followers of the estate won't be disappointed by the newly released 2018.
