Lot #762. Jean Foillard Fleurie 2015

Description: Consists of 4 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 91 NM.
"The 2015 Fleurie has a generous, open-knit bouquet with mineral-driven red cherries, fennel and blackcurrant leaf aromas. The palate is well balanced with fine tannin. It feels very fresh in the mouth with just a hint of menthol furnishing the harmonious finish. It represents one of the most delicious offerings from Alexandre Foillard at the moment. Foillard...you know that name... Jean Foillard, Alexandre's father, has been one of the go-to Beaujolais growers and perhaps, alongside Lapierre, the most prominent to have embraced biodynamie. Therefore, it is no surprise to find that his son has adopted the same tenets towards winemaking as he embarks on his own venture, with Steiner's tenets towards winemaking running through his blood . . . . His own label is currently vinified at his father's winery, although he told me he is seeking his own cellar space in due course. He is certainly a name to watch out for in the future and having apprenticed in other countries, he has good grounding for the future." Wine Advocate #232, Aug 2017
