Overview of the Wine
Jean Foillard is a legendary pioneer of the natural wine movement. His family farms fourteen hectares with a non-interventionist mentality in the heart of Morgon, carrying on his unforgettable legacy within the region. This organic varietal Gamay is silky and smooth, marked by flavors of poppy red fruit, rose petals, and wet rocks. A stellar example of ‘reflective of the place from which it comes!

Jean Foillard made his name crafting world-class, age-worthy bottlings from tiny, prestigious sites within the Beaujolais cru of Morgon. In the last few years, however, he has also added a bottling of Beaujolais Villages to his small lineup. What inspired this expansion? Jean had been making Beaujolais Nouveau that he would rush to us each November to meet the deadline of the worldwide Nouveau celebration. Eventually, he decided he didn’t want to rush anymore. Jean thought the grapes he was using were of high enough quality to make a cuvée with more complexity and a little more longevity, so he proposed taking his time to produce a Beaujolais-Villages instead of a Beaujolais Nouveau.

Featuring grapes from high-elevation, granite heavy terroirs barely outside the region’s crus, this wine is silky and seductive, with notes of rose petals, red berries, and stones. With just the right amount of tannin and acidity, and lots of class, it is perfect for all occasions." —Tom Wolf-Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The grapes are harvested late and, once they’ve been selected by hand in the vineyard, vinification begins with whole bunches. Fermentation is spontaneous with native yeasts and lasts approximately 2 to 3 weeks. The wine then ages in oak barrels for about 6-8 months, and is finally bottled unfiltered.

Young but irresistibly exuberant, Domaine Jean Foillard Morgon Cuvée Corcelette is a natural red wine, the fruit of a passion for minimally interventionist winemaking. A deep, structured, complex wine which demonstrates the best of the grands crus of Beaujolais.

92 Points - Vinous
The 2022 Morgon Cuvée Corcelette has a crisp and delineated bouquet brimming with energy. Lively red fruit seems to leap from the glass. The palate is beautifully built, svelte tannins matched with a silver bead of acidity, very harmonious with a lightly spiced and persistent finish. This has a bit of Liam-Gallagher-like swagger about it—nothing wrong with that in my book.
