Jean Foillard Morgon Côte du Py 2019
|Region||France, Beaujolais, Morgon|
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.
