Alex Foillard, Brouilly, France, 2017
Alex Foillard is the son of “Gang of Four” Morgon producer Jean Foillard, Alex had early exposure to the world of wine, and more specifically, to the principles of sustainable farming and low-intervention winemaking that brought his father to stardom in natural wine circles.
The 2017 Bouilly has soaring aromatics accented with a dark minerality and a Vosne-like spice. The palate is as lush and richly textured as you’re likely to come across in Beaujolais, an abundance of concentrated freshly crushed fruit beautifully framed by gentle tannin and fresh acidity. A rising star of the region, unsurprising given whom his folks are.
