Domaine Alex Foillard Brouilly 2020

To say that Gamay runs in the blood would not be such a terrible exaggeration for Alex Foillard. The son of “Gang of Four” Morgon producer Jean Foillard, Alex had early exposure to the principles of sustainable farming and low-intervention winemaking.

Description

Varietal: 100% Gamay from 50 year old vines in the north-facing lieu-dit La Folie. Undergo whole-cluster fermentation. Aged 50% in concrete tank, 50% in barrels for 6 months. Bottled unfined and unfiltered; then aged 6 months in bottle.

Taste: Glistening ruby in the glass with primary red/blue fruits and succulent flowers on the mineral/spice accented nose. Bright, spicy and energetic on the palate, offering juicy raspberry, boysenberry and spicecake flavors that show clarity and deepen slowly with air. Delivers seamless texture and bright, minerally on the gently tannic finish. Overall strong tenacity and enjoyable repeating floral and mineral notes reminiscent of Jean Foillard's style.
