Brilliant wine from a very tough vintage. Jean Foillard is one of the best. Nice Color, balanced and

The 2012 Morgon Cote du Py has an immediately seductive and engaging bouquet with fine definition: light wild strawberry and red currant scents that are nicely focused. The palate is nicely balanced with supple tannins, nicely judged acidity and, as Jean himself describes it, an ?honesty? that will give pleasure over the next 5 to 6 years. This is very fine. Drink now-2020. The tasting finished with two vintages of the Cuvee 3?14.? Though it is seen as Foillard?s most prestigious cru, I interpret it more as a different take on Morgon and not implicitly superior compared to the Cote du Py. Jean Foillard told me that he only releases it when he can see a tangible difference between these vines and the rest of his parcel.
